Summary

Part one explains the process of obtaining these "interviews from people on the flipside". 

Jennifer Shaffer is a renowned medium and intuitive who works with law enforcement in the US to help find missing persons. Richard Martini is a best-selling author who either knew the people they seek to interview or their class moderator. Luana Anders (on the flipside) helps moderate the discussions. 

Each chapter is an exploration of what was said. Research is done to verify details that are heard, and observations of the process are made. The following is just a sampling of some of the people "accessed" via this process.

  1. "A Class in Translation" - The genesis of the classroom model for chatting with the flipside

Chapter 12 same/repeated in both vol 1&2

THIS IS THE SAME REVIEW I POSTED FOR VOL2 OF THE SAME TITLE.
I BOUGHT BOTH SO I REVIEWED BOTH.

This book was divided into two volumes. I think it should have been one for several reasons.

1) Chapter 12 is EXACTLY the same in both Audible books. In Volume One it is titled "Tom Wilbury 'Backstage Pass'" but in Volume Two it is "Consciousness - Unearthly Answers." Chapters are exactly the same so I'm going to assume it was an error. Now I need to buy the book to get the missing recorded chapter.

2) There was quite a bit of "old information" from his previous books that was almost word-for-word in BACKSTAGE PASS VOLS 1&2. Refer back to it but don't rehash in the exact same manner. It felt like it was word-for-word from his previous books. Def not, as he likes to say, "new information."

3) I was disappointed that what could have been a nice sized book similar to his previous works was divided into two volumes. There was the repeat of a chapter and rehashing of previous info as well as a workbook included at the end of both books (which appeared to be the same also.) I usually get both the Audible recorded book for when I'm driving AND the physical book to make notes in. Since this book was in two volumes I only purchased the Audible version.

Please Mr Martini, please re-release this work as a single volume with chapter 12 corrected.
I will continue to purchase your books bc it has been an enlightening journey!

One of the best books on thie topic

I am a psychic medium. Not surprisingly, I devour every book I can find on this topic. Rich Martini has done a great job of presenting material about how the other side is able to come through to us with messages. What fascinates me about this book in particular is how Rich asks about the technique they use to convey their messages-- the science. the physics about how it works, which to me is the biggest mystery of all. I listened to the Audible version all in one day, and I cannot wait to start Book Two when I finish this review.

Love it!

I really love the stories but I ESPECIALLY 💚 the workbook exercises mentioned in the end of the book about different methods of communicating with the flip side. I love how some of the methods were from the point of view of people on the flip side. Highly recommend this book. I took notes!!

Fascinating Look into our Lives Between Lives

I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Dr. Michael Newton and his work. His case studies of Lives Between Lives (LBL) are fascinating. This led me down the rabbit hole of learning as much as I could and eventually lead me to Richard Martini’s work, and this book.

Mr. Martini’s books about the Flipside provides further research into the subject of LBL’s along with the methods of how we can open ourselves up to communicating with our loved ones, our spirit guide(s), and our councils (which everyone has).

With the help of psychic medium, Jennifer Schaffer, Mr. Martini interviews various celebrities and friends who are no longer on this planet, including Dr. Michael Newton himself, to provide insights into the Flipside and what happens to all of us when we shed our mortal coil.

When my mother passed away last year, I found the messages in this book extremely comforting, and through practice sessions of certain methods outlined in “Backstage Pass to the Flipside” I feel like I am building a stronger connection with her.

While the audio quality of this audiobook isn’t perfect, I did not find it distracting and I could always hear and understand him well. Overall, I find Mr. Martini a joy to listen to, as his personality and sense of humor really shines through. I also find his use of metaphors extremely helpful in understanding certain concepts.

As companion material to this book, and other works about the Flipside by Mr. Martini, check out his and Jennifer’s free weekly podcast that you can find on YouTube, called “Hacking the Afterlife”. He’s also quite active on the website/app “Quora”, where he has answered (and continues to answer) thousands of questions about the Flipside and the research into LBL’s and past life regression therapy. If you still haven’t had enough, he’s made several documentaries about this subject that can be found on Gaia. He’s also had several brilliant, and must see interviews with famous Radio and TV personality, George Noory on his TV show “Beyond Belief” (also streaming on Gaia channel). George has also interviewed Richard on his radio talkshow “Coast to Coast” on multiple occasions.

I just love this topic, and something about it just clicks with me. I look forward to devouring more works from Richard about the Flipside, and hope to one day thank him for his dedication and countless hours of research and documentation that have put so many of us on the path to spiritual awakening, and realizing who we truly are and why we are here.

Fascinating

I think I’ve now heard/read all of the books by Richard Martini and they are all thoroughly engrossing. As a result of his writings, I’ve also had past life regression and life between lives hypnotherapy done by a Michael Newton trained hypnotherapist, as he suggests in his books. It was amazing.
His work has totally changed the way I look at things, especially the death of my son and other negative life events. Thank you, Richard.
