Yesterday I re-posted an article about sleep paralysis, or night terror… which cast a frightening glimpse into a shadowy spirit realm that surrounds the Earth like a dark cloud. I believe that shadow world is related to what is sometimes called purgatory or the lower astral plane or the second level of human existence. Anyway, I had a troubled sleep last night with unsavory dreams, which I’m sure was a result of my day-long focus on that dark, shadowy world.
So, today it feels important to put that into perspective with an article about the mid-astral plane, or third level, where most of us will awaken after we die. It’s quite a nice, earth-like existence, free of injury and disease and scarcity.
One of the best ways to get a glimpse into that paradise is by watching the film Nosso Lar / Astral City…
Sometimes the movie can be seen freely in its entirety, on youtube. Search on “Astral City.”
You can purchase the English (subtitled) version of Nosso Lar, which has been retitled Astral City…
And here’s the trailer:
I reviewed Nosso Lar recently here on this blog. The spirit people residing in that third-level paradise go on missions into the dark realm to locate lost souls (like those troubled entities mentioned in yesterday’s article) and bring them back to paradise, where they can find peace and happiness. Based on my research, the movie is a realistic look at spirit people on the third level committed to helping spirit people stuck on the second level.
Most of the information in today’s article, below, comes from ITC contacts, as reported by Maggy Fischbach of Luxembourg, in her book that I published in English here in the States under the title, Breakthroughs in Technical Spirit Communication. Our spirit friends sent some vivid descriptions of the paradise world they inhabit, from the third-level sending station they call “Timestream.”
Adapted from the book:
While the third spirit plane (mid-astral) is a product of the human mind, it is as much a reality as is planet Earth. People whose ideas and beliefs agree with each other come together here in groups and form one unity. This unity is the stepping stone to the fourth dimension. After crossing into the fourth (higher astral) dimension, also called The Summerland, the human being is relieved of the laws of reincarnation.
To establish this contact with you we have to get close to your world and adapt ourselves as much as possible. In the process we come to resonate with many of your thoughts and attitudes. At the same time, the members of Timestream are already approaching the border lines of higher consciousness at the fourth level.
Sometimes we feel pulled into the beauty of the fourth level, and it’s only the thought of our ITC responsibilities with Earth that tear us away, so we can return to the ITC station on the third level. Our experiences and knowledge from the fourth level might be useful to you.
We live along the banks of the River of Eternity along with those who were once living on Earth. There are animals here. Vegetation varies from algae to mammoth trees. Many buildings are made of wood. Some people or animals wake up here already reborn into bodies at the prime of life. Others come to us as old people and turn young again after the regenerating sleep. Why there are such differences, we do not know. At the end of the growth or rejuvenation process most people will be 25-30 years old. Animals also will be at an age of vitality and well-being, since ethical factors are not involved here. Damaged tissue or broken bones regenerate just like wounds heal in your world but much more perfect. Lost limbs will regrow. The blind will see again, and so on. The color of your hair and skin cannot be changed and will be the same as it was during your Earth life. Here in the river world, beings arrive from all levels of life. Gnomes and giants live together with formless beings and the former human inhabitants of planet Earth. Doubles who were joined but lived on parallel worlds do not live together at the same area of the river.
A personal message from Swejen Salter, director of Spirit Group Timestream:
I died at the age of 38 as the result of an accident. Death came suddenly and unexpectedly. I was totally unprepared and cannot remember my passing over. I awoke on a recliner in a cheerfully decorated room that I had never seen before. Before I could have a closer look around, a tall, imposing man entered the room and identified himself as Richard Francis Burton. He welcomed me and started showing me the world in which he had lived since the year 1890 of your Earth time. I felt happy and safe here. Everybody was friendly and helpful. Still, the change was difficult. It is not easy to adapt to a new life when one is torn away from a daily routine.
If you harbor bad intentions and thoughts you will not be here very long.
In other ITC communications our spirit friends have talked of advanced technologies they use to locate people stuck on the second level (or lower astral planes, or purgatory) and bring them to Timestream to be rejuvenated in paradise. In one case they used something called “down-modulation” to locate a World War II soldier named Arthur Moos, and then used “light-modulation” to bring him home.
The point of this article is to make it clear that the dark, unsavory realm described in yesterday’s article about sleep paralysis is just a tiny blemish on human spirituality. Paradise and ethereal aspiration on an evolutionary path toward the source, or central sun, is our true spiritual heritage and destiny.
That truth, steeped in love and wisdom, resides at the core of our being… and the fears and insecurities stirred up from the dark and dismal second level are little more than a distracting tempest in our carnal mind.
It’s important to get to the core of our being, for example, through heart meditation… and to rest there as much as possible during this tempestuous lifetime on Planet Earth.

Richard Hutchinson says:
Excellent as always. Your messages are wonderful.
I’d like to echo Richard’s comment.
Mark, this was a wonderful story that appeared in the news today and I think it is very relevant to the compassion of higher beings. It sure seems to be different than most of these types of stories because there were so many witnesses to what’s being called “a miracle”.
I agree, Ricky. Great story!
Thanks for sharing it…………
Hey Mark, I’m trying to figure something out. I saw a link to your ITC images from the 80s. There was video of kittens feeding on a mother cat. In the afterlife, isn’t there no need for sustenance in the form of food?
Those cats lapping from a bowl were sent to us (actually, to the Harsch-Fischbach couple in Luxembourg) by Timestream spirit group, without explanation… although in other contacts they explained basically as follows:
While the astral body has no need for consuming food, we take along with us into the afterlife most of the desires and compulsions we’d experienced while on Earth. So, along with absorbing nourishing energy directly into our subtle body, we can eat, drink… even enjoy sex with a willing partner (although, of course, no one gets pregnant). It’s explained in various articles on this blog, including here…
If someone’s skeptical or heavily invested in physics of our world, a lot of this stuff sounds other-worldly… maybe even outrageous. Still, it’s what we’ve been told by our spirit friends, and I’m a hundred percent convinced it’s a realistic look in-beyond.
Mark – I wanted to refer back to a medium’s name you recently gave me (in one of my more recent “comments”). I’ve been unable to find it. I was asking you about what your ITC communications may have said about the teachings of mediums, and then you mentioned the name of a particular medium who had been referenced before (during an ITC communication).
Could you please let me know that name again (I had heard of him, but for now, my 49 year old brain can not remember the name you gave me).
Thanks again for a great site.
Sorry to say I don’t recall that medium we discussed earlier.
I’ve not been working with any mediums for at least a decade, so I don’t think I’d be able to offer any reliable suggestions.
You might want to contact Victor Zammit in Australia (you can probably google his email address; if not, let me know and I’ll forward it to you).
He’s a retired attorney who’s become a diligent afterlife researcher… keeping a pulse on what’s happening, and putting out a weekly report that often includes the names of gifted psychics.
I can’t think of a better source at the moment.
Thanks Mark. Is there a way (on your site) to look at older “comments”? It was approximately a week or so ago (where you had mentioned (in your response to my comment) a medium’s name that one of your ITC communicators had previously referenced). It was because of this reference (made by someone in your ITC communications) that I’m especially interested in studying next (since I like the improved validation of a medium that was actually referenced by an ITC communicator).
Sorry to be a persistent ptia – but I am just hoping that you have visibility to one of your more recent responses to one of my “comments” (where you mentioned the medium’s name)
Thanks again – I’ll owe you one if you can find it….;-)
It seems that the search function doesn’t include the comments section, unfortunately.
So, I’d have as much difficulty finding it as you would.
Kind of a busy time, so I’ll have to pass…..
I believe the information you’re looking for is here:
Ricky – thank you so much – it was really driving me nuts because I failed to write it down the first time (thinking I’d easily be able to find it later).
Really appreciate it!
If ITC communicators referenced one particular medium (from a fairly lengthy list of mediums), I can’t help but think its worth the time to read what he had to say. I’d enjoy hearing any other thoughts on the topic.
Hey David, I see your point about getting good recommendations on psychics from reliable sources… but there’s always the chance of problems with recommendations leading to fame and fortune leading to temptations leading to abuse. The more recognition a person gets, the more kindling the savage side gathers to fire things up. That seems to be a built-in flaw of human nature. Some people (Chico Xavier, for example) can rise above it, other’s have a tougher time dealing with temptations. I’ve read about some very gifted psychics who became famous and ego-driven and began charging huge sums for unpredictable results. (I knew one personally, when he was just on the threshold of fame and fortune, and have observed the evolution of his career since then.)
And, of course, some psychics are just in it for the money from the start, and they rely on clients’ recommendations to their friends. Here’s an interesting article from today’s NY Times:
So, yes, there are some very gifted mediums, many who have retained their humility and dedication. And there are many others who’ve given into their savage human weaknesses for success at others’ expense.
Anyway, on to your other point. Yes, I wish there were an easier way to search this site for words and names buried in the comments. The search feature works well for the text in the articles, but doesn’t search through the comments for some reason. I second your gratitude to Ricky, who happened to recall those comments on teh “Human Story 5″ article.
My best to you both!
You’re welcome! I know that feeling! I couldn’t agree more with you.
Every industry has it’s charlatans (especially mediumship). I’m curious what others have learned (and concluded) about direct-voice mediums in general (and David Thompson and Leslie flint in particular). They seem like the real deal – thoughts?
Thanks in advance,
I’ve had no personal encounter with David Thompson or the late Leslie Flint, but people whose credibility I’ve come to trust have had only positive comments about both of those guys and their direct voice contacts. And their contacts certainly have a genuine feel to them when I listen to them.
Yes, my sense is that they’re both the real deal….
Thanks for your insight Mark. It sure seemed that if they were just an “act”, they should have more money than David Copperfield.
Here’s a video of David Thompson; I understand he’s a very good physical medium…….
