Conversations With Those Who Passed Away
- Second Edition

So, we are here. What happens once we die? Is there an afterlife? Is there eternity? Where is it? How is it? Do we really live forever? Somehow, deep down, we know there is more and wonder what will happen to us after leaving this world.


Stories from the Other Side is based on Anny’s numerous encounters with the dead that have occurred during hypnotherapy sessions. Based on the information Anny has collected from these spirits, she decided to shed light on what happens after we die. By making them talk about themselves, Anny learned the experience is not about lights, heaven, hell, and the like. Transcripts of conversations with spirits do reveal what happens next.


Join Anny as she shares fascinating real life stories from the ones who passed to the next plane.

Part 1, Training in Hypnosis
HYP 201: Professional Hypnotism

Seeing the Buddha facing the front of my office, surrounded by bright yellows Marigolds, someone asked me if I was a Buddhist.


"No, I am not a Buddhist" was my answer.


"Well," said the visitor who came at the door to sell me recently taken aerial pictures of the property, "how come then do you have a Buddha there?"


I chose to put this friendly and smiling Buddha there to convey my welcome to friends, clients and students. The peace of Buddha is the perfect welcome onto the fascinating and rewarding world of hypnosis.


As you are holding this book in your hands, I welcome you to the next step in your hypnosis journey!

HYP 202: Hypnotherapy
Principle & Practice

The picture of my recliner on the book cover is a dedication to all my clients - young and old - who sat in this well used healing space.


One afternoon, a man, in his mid-twenties had a hypnotherapy session regarding his relationship with his father. At the end of his highly emotional and delightful hypnotherapy session he got up and looked at me. Pointing at my recliner he declared “This is a magic chair!”


And since then, the picture of my recliner became my trademark.


With fond memories, I had to put my recliner in retirement, worn out after thirty-one year of constant use. When put in the reclining position I had to hold onto the chair to prevent it to flipping back on the floor.


The replacement arrived, and with great relief, I observed the magic side of the hypnotherapy sessions have been imparted to this comfortable new recliner.


With the aid of the magic recliner, private and surrogate sessions allow me to be current in my teaching and writings.


My wish is for you to have the privilege to facilitate the transformation of a soul. By taking these hypnosis and hypnotherapy courses, I hope you share in “the magic chair”.

Part 2, Training in Regression Therapy

HYP 203: Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy

Using hypnosis as a technique, you are now entering the second phase of training - Regression Hypnotherapy. 


During one-on-one sessions, clients often connect with their inner child. This is the reason I chose a picture of the swing in my yard - it is a perfect image to help you understand what clients experience.


The mind is deductive and goes from effect back to cause. The cause can be anything between a recent situation all the way to a past life.


As you enjoy the training, you will discover that everything has a beginning, and, if your client so desires… everything can be fixed when they go from effect back to cause.


When looking at yourself - you may realize this goes for you too!




Part 2, Training in Regression Therapy

Hypnosis 204: Healing with Hypnotherapy

Did you notice the little 7 ½ cm (3 inches) clay pot, gracing the cover of this book?


What does that have to do with regression therapy and past lives?


Well, this little clay pot was returned to me in 1992. When I saw it, I recognized it, knew it was mine, and what I was using it for.


I instantly burst into tears as I found myself in a past life. I was back there, reliving that time of so long ago.


Wonder what is the story behind the little clay pot?


I will tell you in class…

HYP 601: Hypnotherapy & the Paranormal

The Amidah Buddha is venerated in Buddhist culture. 


It represents unconditional love of self. Yes, you read it right: Unconditional love of self. 

Although named differently in different countries and languages, you will have the same Buddha when asking for the Buddha representing unconditional love. 

Deciding to take a new Reiki course, I went into a trance during the Reiki attunement. As I went into this deep trance - I asked Subby to let me know what was so important to have unconditional love of self.

The answer came to me crystal clear – and I was in shock! Unconditional love of self is a tall order, and has nothing to do with religion, or lack of it. Unconditional love is pertaining to the Paranormal.

This is the reason the Amidah Buddha was chosen for the cover of the book you hold in your hand right now: Hypnotherapy and the Paranormal.

In class, I will explain this to you in much greater detail.

Hypnosis 602: Physiological Stress Release

From the house veranda, I enjoy watching birds frolicking in the bird bath, ruffling their feathers, and picking out whatever they feel should not be hiding there.


They then get out of the water, stand at the hedge of the bird bath, give themselves a good shake and happily fly off to resume the duty of the day.


Just like us, allowing our soul, our diamond as I call it, to feel cleaner and shine in its full beauty each time we resolve an issue weighting on our conscious, bringing with it a much-needed peace of mind.


As you know by now, our soul chose a physical life to speed up evolving our soul, having resolved what weighs heavily in our conscious. 


By being true to ourselves, resolving issues now, we are hopefully preparing ourselves for a better life after this physical one.


With Love and Light,





A poem found in Henry Ford's desk, penned in his wife's handwriting, went like this:

Bite off more than you can chew and chew it.

Dare to take on more than can do and do it.

Hitch your wagon to the stars,

Keep your seat,

And there you are!

Well, it is what kept me going when I put all the Hypnosis class material in book form, now available on Amazon.


Considering my computer skills, I took on more than I could chew – that is for sure! Without the incredible help I got from four people, I am sure I would not even look at such a mammoth project.


It all started with BOOMER who, while in training, one day showed up in class with the incredible, beautiful Hypnotism Training Institute of Alberta, Canada Coat of Arms. With enthusiasm, he then proceeded to put all the HYP 101 Hypnotism, an Introduction class material in book form.


COLIN then made it compatible to be printed by Amazon.

MARIETTA, who was at the time basking in the sun on a beach somewhere during a bitter winter here in Alberta, Canada, designed the HYP 101 book cover on her very smart Laptop. Thankfully, she had taken it along, for a “just in case.” Following this, she designed the Kimberlite Publishing House logo.


After publishing HYP 101 on Amazon, it took Colin three years to persuade me to do the same with each of the next class materials for the rest of the courses.


Because of the way the course material could now be presented in class, the quality of the in class discussions was incredible!


As usual, I needed to see the end result in my mind.


And then, various events happened – including the Covid-19 virus. It was the right time to give the school a rejuvenated two shots, just like me getting vaccinated with two jabs in the arm for total protection.


My Webmaster PAT went along and rejuvenated my websites, as well as being excellent at ‘cleaning’ pictures – these pictures became a highlight of the front covers of the six Class Companions.


Colin, having already published six books on Amazon, was doing the book layouts, as well as having suggested what to put on the front and the back of the book covers.


Having gone to her office to choose the colours, Marietta created and designed the templates as well as the striking book covers to project what I wanted to convey.


Colin had an incredible patience with me – coming to the office, correcting my work as I was watching him. I watched to learn to outsmart that electronic machine who, in my view, is as temperamental as women.


A soon as you figure out how to handle the computer, an UPDATE appears – and you have to figure it all out again! Right?


Typing this class material often got me in a pleasant hypnotic trance, and as I am reading what I typed, the spellcheck was in a hypnotic trance too!


In addition to have come to the office from 8 am to 11 pm well over 20 times, I was also calling Colin on the telephone many times, asking how to get out of a situation that, according to the computer, I got myself into.


It got taxing for him, and Colin gave me a hypnosis session as a HYP 202 class demonstration – fixing my computer “thing.”


And it worked well – much to his surprise and delight. Result: The six HTI Class Companions published on Amazon in seven months.


Yes, this was really teamwork.  As the present saying goes: “We are all in this together” … whether we like it or not.


From the bottom of my heart, I thank each and every one of them to have helped me.

This is the 1977 Willis Jeep I am writing about in my book "And Then I Got a Blue Carpet - How to Get Things Fast".

Her engine was purring with pleasure when taking her out for a ride on my 85th birthday. It was a beautiful day, no tarp needed.  There were no safety belts when we bought the Jeep brand new, only a "chicken bar" on the dashboard for the passenger to hold on to for safety.
