Proof of Life after Death: Seeing is Believing

It is pitch dark….and twenty one people are sealed within a room.

Suddenly, several loud raps from high up near the ceiling are heard followed by little points of light bursting out of nowhere that dance and whirl around the darkened room.

This is the first stage of a physical mediumship demonstration and séance orchestrated by the Felix Experimental Group (FEG) of Hanau, Germany.

Physical medium Kai Muegge along with wife and coordinator Julia brought this amazing demonstration to the United States in a recent tour that I was fortunate enough to be invited to on September 1 in Springfield, NJ.

The evening began with Kai giving us some background of his life and the development of the Felix Experimental Circle before entering the séance room.

Poltergeist activity

Kai recalls seeing and hearing spirits from an very early age. As a preteen he and his family experienced a period of poltergeist activity (coming from the German word “noisy ghost”).

Poltergeist activity is thought to be related to having a teenager in the home with latent physical mediumship abilities. The teenager is believed to be unaware that they are a physical medium. They produce spontaneous telekinesis (movement of objects) and have no idea how to control their abilities. When they are under stress physical phenomena ensue. The poltergeist activity usually stops when the teenager learns how to deal with their emotions and cope with young adulthood.

Early mediumship circles

Kai’s interest in the paranormal began as a young boy with his own experiences so it’s no surprise that he began putting together mediumship circles at age fifteen. The Felix Experimental Circle was born ten years ago when he was thirty-four as the result of much searching, researching and bringing together the right people to sit in his circle.

Physical mediumship is the collaboration of not only the abilities of the physical medium but the members (called “sitters”) in the circle. The physical medium and subsequent spirits draw upon the energy given off by the sitters to manifest the physical phenomena. It’s extremely important for sitters to exude positive energy along with a heightened sense of enthusiasm and excitement. This high level energy is drawn upon by the spirit world to create physical demonstrations on this dimension.


The Felix Experimental Circle is different from other circles conducted in the style of the British and Americans. The medium is not bound to his chair with restraints but continuously checked upon by a sitter to his right (his wife Julia) and by a sitter to his left by maintaining a hand on his knee and feeling his arms and hands in the darkness to ensure that he is not the one moving about the room creating the phenomena. Throughout the séance checks are conducted so that it can be announce to the rest of the circle that the medium remains in his chair.

Also different from the British and American style sittings the German circle does not include the visitations or performances of celebrities, “cheeky” children or other extroverted entertaining characters that are now in spirit. The precise scientific German mindset exists within the séance room as well. Kai’s spirit control is a renowned German parapsychologist, Hans Bender, who passed into the spirit world in 1991. Dr. Bender presides over the room and narrates and explains the activity for the sitters as it occurs.

Going into Trance

Kai explained that he goes into trance using “holotropic breathing” a technique he learned in his shamanistic training based on the work of Stanislav Grof. He warned us so that we would not be alarmed as it can sound as if he is unwell or having an asthma attack. In deep trance throughout the entire séance, Hans Bender takes over his body and speaks to the group from the spirit world. Afterward Kai remembers nothing about the séance and will awaken as if he had been sleeping the entire time.

Another extraordinary difference

Kai Muegge is one of very few physical mediums in the world who is able to produce ectoplasm. Ectoplasm is a substance that emanates from the energy of the medium. It is normally seen coming out of the mouth and sometimes nostrils. ears or solar plexus area. It has been described as appearing to have a “cheesecloth-like” characteristic.

The Felix Experimental Group has perfected their group energy to enable Kai to produce ectoplasm and to allow a low voltage red light to be turned on at various times throughout the séance so that sitters can witness this extraordinary event.

Preparations for entering the séance chamber

Kai instructed all of us not to reach out or touch anything that came toward us in the dark of the séance room. He explained that some of us would be touched by invisible hands, possibly caressed by small creatures (former pets) or struck by flying objects in the room. When physical phenomena are under way the energies of the medium are being utilized quite heavily. Touching and object could sever that connection between the physical manifestation and the medium and harm him.

We were also asked for our cooperation in creating the proper energetic environment within the room. Sitters are asked to maintain a high level of energy for the medium and spirits to draw upon. High-energy music such as ABBA, the Beatles is played and sitters are asked to sing along. The singing allows the positively charged energy to build up in the room.

Before sitters can enter the séance room they are asked to remove shoes, belts and subjected to a “pat-down” to be sure that they take nothing into the chamber. Kai is strip searched before being the last to enter the room. (Before entering the séance room I happened to glance over at the room where Kai was undressing and can attest that he was stripped down to his skivvies as I saw him when he opened the door and called for the designated sitter to come and frisk him.)

Inside the séance room

The room is meticulously inspected by designated sitters before-hand to ensure that nothing is hidden in the room that could be used to manipulate physical objects. The doors are covered in dark black plastic material that is taped to the walls so no light penetrates. Once the door is sealed no one can leave or enter without removing yards of tape or making a noisy exit.

The chairs for the sitters in the séance room were set up in a horse-shoe shape around the cabinet. The cabinet (a contained space for the energy of the medium to build up) that Kai uses is very simple. Unlike other cabinets I have seen; which were plywood boxes (like large telephone booths) with a curtain on the front opening Kai’s was merely a hula hoop with a long black curtain hanging from it that was attached to the ceiling. Two buckets were placed within the horseshoe. The one near Kai contained a few small cloths for Hans to wipe his forehead and the other was turned upside down and placed at the bottom of the horse-shoe directly across from the cabinet. On top of it was a tambourine, rattles and other noise making instruments for the spirits to use to announce their presence.

Once we were all situated in our assigned seats within the room Julia asked that we all hold hands (take chain) and Kai went into trance with his holotropic breathing and the phenomena began.

Physical phenomena

The first thing that occurred in the pitch darkness was the loud rapping sounds coming from various places around the room near the ceiling. Almost instantly there was a jumble of voices as sitters round the room began calling out, “I’ve been touched,” and stating where on the body they felt the touch. It was all very exciting!

Soon after that small spheres of lights emerged from the darkness, at first just near the ceiling but soon after began circulating the room. The lights flew around the room with incredible speed touching sitters and zooming past others or appearing to skate upon the floor.

Julie called for silence and Dr. Bender explained that the energy within the room was very healing. While the FEG does not offer healing per say, many spontaneous healings of sitters’ ailments have taken place and are documented in testimonials on the FEG website.

Dr. Bender said many of our loved ones were in the room with us. He said they do not forget us and that when we grieve for loved ones who have passed on it affects them. They want us to know that they live on in the spirit realm and can feel our love. In fact, Bender stated, love is the one thing that remains that they take with them.

Spirit orchestra!

Soon after this the rattles, tambourine and the striking of keys on a xylophone were heard including the footfalls of spirits walking around within the horse-shoe force field area. 

I became so engrossed in the phenomena that it was hard to keep track of what came next.

I believe Julia set a glow in the dark tile on the overturned bucket at the head of the horseshoe and a spirit hand showed itself against the backdrop of the light. I had a hard time seeing anything other than the shape of a palm from where I sat but many called out that they were able to see the fingers flexing.

One sitter attending her first séance was kind enough to share her impressions with me:

This “Tinkerbell” type light kept coming and dancing in front of us – zipping back and forth leaving a streak of light behind (like a comet).   I was truly mesmerized.  Later, one of the glow in the dark ping pong balls rolled directly to my feet and stayed there – I could not remove my eyes from it.    And while I did not feel any touches as others did, I was physically struck by the trumpet in the arm several times in succession.  The woman sitting next to me felt it also and we were both so excited over it.  The handkerchief was first held by a gentleman, who was only 3 chairs away from me, so I had a wonderful view of the hankie being yanked away – it was fascinating to see so close up.   I could view the part of the hankie being pulled by the spirit and see the tug of war going on.   Then a woman nearer to me held it and held on longer (as per the instructions of Hans) so it would not fall to the ground as it had done with the gentleman.  She held onto it while it was being strongly pulled by spirit.  Again — what a wonderful view I had. 

Each time Julia was asked to move to the next phase of demonstration during the séance she turned on a small red lamp so she could find her way to exchange the props the spirits would use, otherwise the room was absolutely unnavigable as it was so dark. The lamp also allowed us to see that all the sitters were still in place including the medium in his chair.

After this, Julia set out three ping pong balls covered in glow in the dark paint that she illuminated with a small flashlight to make them glow. The spirits picked them up and pushed them about. One was whacked clear across the room.

Throughout the entire séance when the activity was at a height, Hans Bender asked Julia to call for silence and the medium was checked to prove to the sitters that he was not the one moving the items about.

The ping pong balls were followed by a demonstration of an illuminated trumpet flying around the room. Several sitters were struck by the cardboard trumpet (with no injury).

The last of the physical phenomena was an illuminated handkerchief studded with illuminated tape. It was given to one of the sitters to hold by one of its corners with his hand outstretched into the vortex of energy of the horse-shoe. Within seconds some spirit starting tugging on it as it became outstretched and was eventually pulled from his hands and flew across the room. This demonstration was repeated again by the several sitters who picked it up after the spirit pulling it dropped it.


Finally, the highlight of the evening was Kai’s copious production of ectoplasm. He needed to close the curtains on the cabinet in order to build up sufficient energy to produce the strange vapor-like substance. The low red light was allowed several times during the process so we could see the build-up of ectoplasm at his feet and to see it moving and sort of “breathing.”

At one point the curtains were opened and we were shown the ectoplasm going in reverse and up to Kai’s mouth. It appeared as a taut stream moving upwards. After this Hans Bender picked up the substance with his (Kai’s) hands and showed us how elastic and sticky it was. He stuck it on the curtains of the cabinet where it clung quite easily. It appeared to stretch and have a string-like texture to it. At times it even looked a little smoky (like vapor).

The finale of the ectoplasm demonstration was when Hans Bender inserted his invisible “spirit hand” (not Kai’s) into the ectoplasm and a hand emerged out of it waving to the sitters in the séance in red light. Unfortunately, from my seat I was too far and it was too dark for me to make out the hand but others saw it clearly and called out, “A hand!”

Dr. Bender stated that the hand was important as it was with the “hands” of man that fashioned creation as we know it in the physical world. He also pointed out that it was with “hands” that we destroy life as well.

Spirit photography

Photographer, Shannon Taggart was one of our sitters. She had set her tripod up in the séance room and was ready to take photos but Dr. Bender did not consent to have her take pictures of this sitting. She had however photograph FEG’s sitting in Lilydale, NY just a week prior and he thought that those photos were enough.

After this the séance came to an end some three hours later at 1 am in the morning.

Sitters exited the room in single file away from the medium as he came out trance and recuperated for a few moments alone with Julia.

Refreshments were served and later Kai came in to see us and ask if we had enjoyed the séance. Kai (and Julia) were both so personable. Kai went up to each sitter and personally thanked them for coming.

He asked if we had any questions he could answer but due to the late hour we left as it was 45 minute ride and we didn’t get home until well after 2 am.

A memorable evening

This was my first experience with ectoplasm. It truly did live up to its reputation and all I have read about it.

If you have a chance to attend a sitting with Kai Muegge and Julia Muegge and the Felix Experimental Cirlce I highly recommend it. It will turn your view of reality on its head!

Do The Dead Live? Victor Zammit Answers

Do The Dead Live? Victor Zammit Answers

Victor Zammit is the publisher of the weekly newsletter: The Friday Afterlife Report; now in it’s 10th year of publication ( He is also a retired attorney of the Supreme Court of the New South Wales and the High Court of Australia.

Victor was initially suspicious of the New Age Movement for what appeared to be its blatant commercial exploitation of people’s basic instinctual tendency for spiritual development. However after many years as an open-minded skeptic he had a number of repeated psychic/mediumistic experiences which set him questioning, reading and researching.

Victor Zammit wrote A LAWYER PRESENTS THE CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE (National Library of Australia Card No. and ISBN 0-9580115-0-8), which is on the internet. This book has been translated into Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, Russian, and now is in the process of being translated into German and French.

Victor has become one of the world’s most renowned authorities on afterlife research.  His weekly report is read across the globe.

I’m delighted and honored to bring you this fascinating interview with Victor Zammit:

1. Victor, can you tell us what happens to us when our physical body dies? Do we continue to exist? How, and where?

(The authority for the following comes directly from the afterlife- from different sources: including Arthur Findlay, Anthony Borgia, Silver Birch & others).  Empirical evidence and personal communicating with afterlife entities confirm that on physical death, under normal circumstances, our spirit body (also known as the etheric body) lifts out of the then dead physical body. We are then met by someone we know and can trust to help us move on to the realm of the light – usually the Third Realm of the Light – as many call it.

There is plenty of authority to confirm that it is our cumulative vibrations (our level of spirituality) which will determine in which part of the Third Realm we’ll end up. The reasonable, open minded, selfless, good average people will end up in the middle Third Realm. This is a place far more beautiful than Earth. There’s no need to sleep, clean, work, cook – there’s no wind, no dust, no rain. However, there will be instances where a person’s conduct on physical earth was consistently cruel and most selfish. Conduct on earth has a connection with the level of our vibrations: good selfless deeds will increase our vibrations; cruel and selfish deeds will lower our vibrations.

So, those whose cumulative level of vibrations will be relatively low go into a realm which will accommodate their level of vibrations – usually a realm lower than the third realm of the light.

Of course, there are also exceptions. Someone who is absolutely denies that there is an afterlife could  be caught in a darker, misty place and become a ‘ghost’.  Closed minded skeptics are prime candidates to be trapped-  and continue to deny there is an afterlife when in fact they are in the afterlife! Highly reliable and credible information from the other side, e.g. Silver Birch, tells us that this situation could last from a few hundred years to thousands of years – in a terrible  state where the environment is eerie, the consciousness is in a ‘dreamy’ state. But one time in the future,even if it takes eons of time, they will concede they were wrong and very slowly will approach the realm of the light.

Do we continue to exist?  How and where?

Highly credible information from the other side tells us that we all have the ‘spark’ of the divine in us, that our spirit is pure vibrating ‘energy’ and we continue to evolve and transform.  ‘Energy’ can never ‘die’ – can never be destroyed. The afterlife has different realms ascending in level of vibration from the lowest to the highest. It has been transmitted from the afterlife dimension that everything evolves, including of our spirit. We continue to evolve spiritually from the lower realms to the highest realm – again that will take long time. Of course, every time we go to a higher level, conditions improve enormously. Those who have made an unselfish contribution regarding spirituality and afterlife are likely to end up in the fourth level after a short time in the third level. The afterlife is a huge place – too huge for us to even imagine.

2. What inspired you to create The Friday Afterlife Report?

When I first started to systematically investigate the afterlife in 1990 reliable afterlife information was not so easy to obtain.  Then after ten years of afterlife research – with so many people asking me lots of questions, I came to the conclusion that with my knowledge and experience in presenting evidence, I could help a lot of people around the world seeking information about the afterlife. I get a great deal of satisfaction from the responses I receive; it is wonderful to know that the weekly Friday Afterlife report is helping thousands of people around the world – even as far as Russia and China (I now have a website dealing with the afterlife in Chinese – the book is being translated into Chinese to go on the internet. This came about because of enthusiastic responses I received from China about the Friday Afterlife Report..

3. What’s your background prior to becoming one of the world’s top authorities on the continuation of consciousness?

I was primarily a litigation lawyer.
3. Why  is it so important to you to get the message out that we survive physical death?

Simple: the afterlife has huge consequences and too many people because of ignorance about the afterlife fail to reach the realm of the light on crossing over.

For the record, I am not a crusader for the afterlife. I consider myself to have a ‘mission’ and to help people understand that there is an afterlife – without religion. Up until 1990 I was regularly attending meetings of Humanists– fairly hard-core skeptics.

Then I started to experience – without wanting to– psychic experiences. I had some dramatic experiences which absolutely stunned me. I was always sensitive but for some unknown reason it was as if in 1990 a psychic alarm-clock went off. When I investigated what was going on I found there was a lot of misinformation about psychic phenomena, mediumship and the afterlife. People were being misled by orthodoxy about the afterlife. I felt motivated to present the empirical, unrebuttable evidence for the afterlife. I was aware that the afterlife has huge consequences – and that there are those who do not make it to the realm of the light. I felt people must know the truth about the afterlife – especially when religion does not know what really happens when we cross over.

4. Is there a difference between a physical medium and a mental medium?

Yes of course there is: A mental medium connects mentally with spirits.
This is also called clairvoyance. No-one else can see them or hear them.

A physical medium goes into trance and usually produces raps and movement of objects. As they advance they may find objects like coins materializing.

A materialization medium is also a physical medium but through them afterlife intelligences are able to materialize, become solid; we can shake hands with them, and able to verbally speak to us in the séance room.

4. Is there a way to tell if someone has the capacity to be a physical medium?

Not as far as I know. The best way is to tell a budding medium to sit in darkness with a development circle to see if he/she is gifted for physical mediumship. You have to judge by the results.

5. Do you believe that the world would benefit by more people establishing physical mediumship groups, or what are referred to as circles? If so, why?

Physical mediumship – especially materialization mediumship is  the greatest proof for the existence of the afterlife. I’m a member of the Circle of the Silver Cord. I’ve sat with gifted physical-materialization medium David Thompson – and the proof for the evidence for the afterlife is blatantly and irreversibly clear. David, the medium sits in the dark. He exudes ectoplasm (I actually witnessed this ectoplasm being exuded from his mouth) – then spirits using this ectoplasm actually materialize and become solid. I’ve shaken hands and discussed the afterlife with these ‘physically’ materialized spirits – intelligences from the afterlife. Absolutely there is no fraud – guaranteed all is genuine. We’ve investigated David every week for some fifteen months. I state it is the greatest discovery in human history.

6. What should a person expect to see, hear and feel if they were to sit in on a physical mediumship circle? Are there any physical mediums in practice today you recommend for readers interested in sitting in on a circle?

There are lots of physical mediumship circles developing today. You need to be very patient and have absolute harmony. You can expect to see objects starting to move and perhaps hear voices of departed loved ones. But people interested in physical/materialization mediumship should contact the Zerdin Phenomenal – Ros and Dennis in England specialize in this area. I would also recommend that they contact Tom and Kevin in France who are helping a number of physical mediums to develop.

7. Does science support any theories about life after death/survival of consciousness?

Absolutely! But note very carefully: ‘science’ is now divided into at least two groups – the traditional ‘Reductionist Materialist Science’ and the ‘New Science’ – mostly physicists. Closed minded reductionist scientists – those biologists, zoo-ologists, chemists and others – usually reject anything to do with the afterlife or the paranormal – but they do not tell us WHERE, WHEN, HOW  and WHY the empirical evidence for the afterlife cannot be valid. Not one reductionist scientist has ever done that in the history of the scientific evidence for the afterlife. Then there are the New Scientists from Quantum Physics – those who investigated the afterlife and accepted the evidence – see chapter two and chapter 25 (on Quantum Physics and the Afterlife)-  of my book on the net A LAWYER PRESENTS THE CASE FOR THE AFTERLIFE– free to access –

8. What do you feel the future holds for physical mediumship? Do you see it gaining more wide-spread acceptance?

No doubt, physical mediumship in the hands of responsible and gifted physical mediums will go a long way.  As I stated above in my view it is the best proof for the existence of the afterlife. I’m not going to say it will be easy, but the long term prognosis favors physical mediumship. Of course, I have to qualify that – it is critical to have mediums who do have gifts/skills in physical phenomena.

9. What’s next for you? What are you working on now?

I keep on researching for the evidence and proof of the afterlife – and to disseminate this information on a global level. My very close association with a materialization medium is a fantastic assistance in my ability to continue to do my afterlife research. I have direct communication with a reliable afterlife intelligence called William, David Thompson’s guide.

10. What do hope to impart to the world?

That I’ve done my best to disseminate the ‘light’ on a global level.
