The Death Show: A 14-Part Series on Healing and Understanding presented by The Outer Limits of Inner Truth Radio Show


…”The World’s Only Show About Forensic Soul Analysis. If Science & Mysticism got married, the Outer Limits of Inner Truth radio show would be their child. OLIT (Outer Limits of Inner Truth) is a program about introspection, discovery, and evolution. It premiered on February 2014 and within a few short months, was picked up for national syndication on Starcom Radio Networks (44 AM Stations). In 2018, OLIT was picked up by Mental Health News Radio Network (a large media network that features programs about psychology and mental health)…”

This 14-Part series about Death is comprehensive and informative in its presentation. Each broadcast is an hour or more in content with each section parceled out to reflect all of the stages, questions and beliefs about Death. The collection of more than seventy interviews is a mix of select listeners and a heavy dose of professional clairvoyants, psychics, mediums, artists, clinical psychologists, therapists, Reiki Masters and more. Overall, I found the broadcasts to more than adequately foster a place of community, sharing and counsel that is applicable to all aspects of the grieving process and more importantly to the fear of the unknown and our own mortality.

Although time intensive, I enjoyed listening to the different perspectives presented and broadening my own philosophies regarding the Death Process. My Mother passed two years ago on September 22nd., so the information presented was both timely and comforting.

These are the topics explored:

The Healing Process Begins

Managing Mindset Parts 1 and 2

Exploring Mental Health and remaining centered and focused throughout the grieving process.

What You Can Do For Others

Practical advice on how to navigate grief as a support for the bereaved. It is a delicate space of knowing when and how to interject your support and sympathy when you are trying to offer comfort. Understanding what this looks like and that every individual is unique in how they process loss provides the necessary insight in reading the situation and assessing the need.

The Virtues

The Virtues are the Elite Team of experts on the Outer Limits including a Medium (Lisa McGarrity), Psychic Empath (Kerrie O’Connor), Animal Communicator (Lisa Caza) and Astrologer (Constance Stellas).

I was particularly drawn to this fifth installment and discussion of the Soul’s Journey and past life experience. All of us want more information on what to expect of our own death and how to reach out to those who have passed. Questions such as – How long before you should wait to attempt contact with your loved one? What forms do the Spirits take when they present themselves to the psychic/medium? How are they able to communicate?

How soon after the passing would you wait to connect? – general rule of thumb about 1 year for clear connection.

I especially liked the simplicity of this suggestion by Lisa McGarity:

What to do if you would like to communicate with someone passed over…..

Sending the intention of being able to clearly communicate with your loved one. Write a letter as though you were going to interact on a physical level. Often the response will come in the form of a dream or impression.

Teachers and Mystics Parts 1 and 2

There are many beliefs and cultural bias around death. Hearing some of these teachings and the ways we process the spiritual nature of death. Precepts such as non-judgment and the dispelling of the illusion of corporeal and manifest life. The Soul and the human form are reflections of consciousness and the levels of understanding and development that has occurred within manifest form, aligning the transition from life to death into the point of resonant energy.

Near death Experiences 3-Parts

A series of interviews with individuals who have had NDEs and their unique stories that carry some of the common threads.

Nanci’s Story

An depth sharing of a NDE and the blueprint of our cosmology that she was given.

Communication With the Departed

How communication occurs and the various modalities and types of communion that can be used to seek counsel from those passed.

Animal Afterlife

This section offered some much needed comfort and information to those who have lost a beloved animal companion.

Science and Skeptism

The conclusion of the series attempts to bring science and the inherent skeptic nature into cohesion. It concludes with a 4-way debate between the host, Ryan McCormick, David Silverman President of the American Atheists, David I. Orentein, Ph.D., Humanist Clery and Atheist author and speaker

NDE Researcher Dr. Jeffrey Long. The opening question posited by the host, Ryan is:

What if all of the previous segments were “bullshit”? What if science had a logical explanation for everything stated and there was nothing mystical about the experience of death? Ryan goes on to encourage listeners to develop their own belief systems rather than “following” the conclusions of others. This segment opens with an interview with Bob Berman, astronomer and co-author of Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe who promotes knowledge of our place within the Universe in both the stages of life and death and time’s role in creation.

The debate opens Pandora’s box of enabling the listener to formulate their own realities between what science and mysticism repel as truth and attempt to coalesce as belief.

Bare Feet on an Earth Path

August, 2013

   Not too long ago, I was pondering something that had been on my mind for some time.  As a past conservative creationist Christian, it had been somewhat difficult for me to reconcile my spirituality with evolution.  Not because paganism conflicts with evolution in any way. In fact, I’ve found that most pagans love science and are quick to point out just how well it can coexist with new scientific knowledge.  So if there was no contradictory theology, what was the problem?  It was something that built up slowly, with every biology teacher who taught about humans’ place in evolution as if we came along just like any other animal, and might just as easily fade away to be replaced by others.  I thought I needed to find a way to look at evolution that would make life seem… meaningful.  Not like some completely arbitrary event, where the Divine stood back one day, shocked, and exclaimed, “Oh look!  I, the Universe, have accidentally made some humans!”  But as I thought more about the problem, the real issue hit me for the first time. 

   I didn’t want to be just an animal.  Which is a terrible thing to be if an animal is a simple life form that lives and passes away while we, the superior humans, linger on in the Universal Goo or the Summerlands or wherever it is you think we end up.  I wasn’t seeing the world around me from a pagan perspective at all.  As much as I tried to distance myself from my faith of origin, I was still seeing life through the lens of a Christian worldview.

   As I thought about it further, I realized that being “just an animal” is a complete non-issue for a pagan.  Because the Divine is immanent, that spark, that spirit, is just as present in the plants and animals around us as it is in us.  Over the next couple of days, I probed my beliefs about animals and, in fact, everything around me. Did animals have souls, I wondered. What is a soul? Did plants? And I came to the conclusion that, for me, believing that all life around me has some sort of animus, or spirit, helps me to reconcile my spirituality with the reality of the world and its history.

   We pagans focus a lot on the spiritual side of ourselves and understand that what we see and that which is most obvious is not all that there is. Though we may disagree about the details, many of us at least agree that there’s more to being human than the bodies we move in and the minds we think with.  That spirit within us communes with the spirits within the trees as we listen to them whisper words on the wind, and with the spirits within the animals as we watch them cautiously forage for food and dart away at the slightest sound. 

   I began to look at my pets in a different way.  If the spirit, or soul, is that truest part of us, then the fact that they couldn’t understand my words didn’t make them less than me. On another level, perhaps their spirits could acknowledge and understand mine. I had been holding on to the Christian theological idea that man was made in the image of God, while other animals were lesser and under our care. That our possession of a self-aware intellect, that thing that scientists say sets us apart from other animals, did, in fact, make us superior to those animals. To be able to think about the world around us is an awesome thing, but I don’t think it makes us superior, and I don’t think that ability is the highest or most important part of us.


   Maybe, as humans, we are just animals.  But I’ve finally realized that it’s okay that our abilities and characteristics were inherited over time through the slow process of evolution, like those of all the other species. Maybe it’s even okay if, in the millenia to come, Homo Sapiens pass away entirely, to be replaced by some other species more fit than we.  Being “just an animal” is no big deal, really.  The spark within us is made of the same stuff, after all, no matter the outer guise we wear. 


“Humankind has not woven the web of life.

We are but one thread within it.”
