The Bubble

The Bubble

 The Bubble by Chris Fleming

On Monday,  February 16, 2015 at approx 11:00 am I witnessed something, one might say, seemingly out of a fairy tale. 


I was on my computer, running an automatic cleanup software on my laptop and iMac. As I did this my attention was brought to a small bubble, yes a bubble that was floating in the air slowly over my desk around my laptop towards my computer and then towards me. It flew over my hand and mouse and seemed to hover, ever so briefly. I was transfixed, wondering where the heck this came from. At first I questioned was it lint, fur…no it was.. a foamy-bubble!  It sped up and ran right into my shirt and (as it seemed) disappeared. I then sat straight up and felt this overwhelming sensation of peace, calm and mindset correction. As if I, myself was wiped clean of all my thoughts for a brief moment. I felt whole, at peace, and in complete control, yet I have never felt for that brief moment so aware of my own self and sense of being. Sadly this didn’t last long, maybe 10 seconds give or take. 


I stopped what I was doing and relished in this moment. Then I began to ponder again. Was that a bubble or was that some dust that looked like a bubble? I patted my shirt, nothing. I lifted it up and shook it, nothing. Then all of a sudden I watched as this bubble came out of my chest (on its own) circled around my hand and arm and then flew very slowly up to the ceiling. I stood up in awe, dumbfounded. 


It was tiny,  half the size of your index nail on your finger. It was not clear, it had substance to it – like foam from a car wash. It seemed to be made up of that same white-slightly grey substance you see in vaporish mists, yet it was almost completely round or oval. It moved with no sound, quietly, smoothly but also sped up with purpose. 


I never saw it come back down from the ceiling. There are no drafts in my office, the heat is off at the moment. I tried rationalizing what it could be. But I had nothing. Nothing I could relate it to, except the videos I caught years ago with flying lights and orbs on night vision. Yeah I know, most of that is dust, but not all mind you. Was this something similar, but seen with my own eyes? 


So, I stood up and looked around the ceiling. I waited. Nothing came back down. I threw my hands in the air and nothing appeared. Where did it go? Up through the ceiling, through the wall, upstairs? I felt uncompelled to check. I was… in the moment of awe. 


What was it? Was it conscious thought? Was it my imagination because I was cleaning my computers? Hell no. I have seen enough in my life to know what is what.  It was clearly not my imagination. I stopped what I was doing. I watched it. I reacted. I sat up. I waved my arms. I felt an internal peace, a realignment of my own thoughts. Even if the sensation was for a brief moment, it got my attention. 


Was it a spirit? Was it? I am not quit sure. I feel it was, I felt this interest, this sense of becoming it had. A sense of love. As if it was making contact but also giving me something as well. 


The timing is interesting on this. 


Friday, February 13th I recorded an interview with Dr. Parisetti on consciousness of my podcast spirit talk. We spoke about our spirit, our mind existing outside of our bodies.  Late last night, February 15th I completed my video “Communicating with the dead Part 1 in Costa Rica” and posted it online. During the editing of that video I witnessed an elongated vaporish mist float across my bookcase towards the hallway out of my office. I jumped up in excitement after seeing that. Yelling, “I saw you, I saw you”…then for some funny reason I began dancing and singing a song of my own making, “I saw spirit, I saw spirit” and began clapping in the old gospel hymns of the old days. 


Were these encounters occurring because of my spiritual experiences I had a day before my trip to Costa Rica? (Jan 28-Feb4th) I have not spoken about this yet. The signs from the universe I continuously received during my trip.  I heavy feeling that I would not come back from Costa Rica. This terrible feeling something was going to happen on my trip and I would not return. It was so strong, that I even texted and told some friends about this. Yet, I felt I had to go anyway. I had to find out for sure, if it is truly written, then it must be done. Obviously, I made it back home, but what happened those first few days led up to a change in  my mindset, which set out to change my path on that trip. If these occurrences did not occur, my trip would have ended with a different story. You see the 2nd to  last night in Costa Rica something scary was happening. I was being followed. I could have reacted one of two ways. The choice I made, changed my future. It could have gone a different way, that would in fact fulfill the dread I had and most likely completed a different path in my life or the end of my life.  The choice was made. (I may write about what occurred in an upcoming blog).


Because of these changes, these “remarkable” things that have been occurring lately, It is with this I look back on the “flower of life” and the truth of the universe that as we (I) increase our (my) awareness, seek and expand our (my) consiousness the universe occasionally chimes in with the “you will find” letting us (me) know we (I) are (am) either on the right path “or” they are making contact lettings us (me) know they are not only listening in, but doing what they can to assist our (my) “spiritual” growth. The universal law of spirit, to grow and become one with the universe, the multiverse and all that is….is actually very simple, we (we all) become one in consciousness with the creator. It is our choice, if we do desire. 


When we are one, we are all seeing and all knowing. Collective in consciousness. We stay on this path, doors to many insights open up to us, over and over again. 


Some may say, “my god you just saw a bubble,  what is with all this spiritual stuff?” Some may see a bubble, but I say to you, the awareness becomes “where did it come from?, where did it go?” and it is a reminder that as small as it maybe, it is a fragmental reminder that we are all a part of the whole. You may stare at yourself in the mirror. Do you see “you” or do you see the billions of cells, nerves and the miraculous consciousness that runs and has created that body of yours? The universal power that has allowed you to manifest into it, for a life long experience? What do you see?


If I asked you have you ever looked into a child’s eyes? What would you say, what did you see? My life, my encounters and  my experiences have taught me to see the following……When I look in a child’s eyes, I see the very soul that occupies that space. I see the creator working through that child to show us love, trust, happiness, compassion, connection, and responsibility. 


If the child is sad, scared and gone through horrible circumstances, I say to you…what has our world done to this child? What have we allowed our world to do to the love, trust, happiness, compassion, connection and responsibility given to us with this soul by the creator himself. 


The gifts we are given and the gifts we give all have meaning. It is our choice to allow them to be for good or bad. 


Like the bubble,  it came from somewhere. It didn’t exist/originate on its own. It went somewhere, it didn’t cease to exist. Some may allow the bubble to float and continue its journey, while others may pop it and say “I have had enough.”


We are all an extension of the creator, we are all on a journey, but we are never truly alone. There are those higher up, that listen and embrace our thoughts. Want us to succeed in spiritual evolution and return to the creator. This world we have created tends to separate way to much regarding who we truly are. Diminishing our beliefs, holding us back from growth. Which is a shame. 

This journey, what occurred was only meant for me, but the message, well that is meant for us all.    It’s time for all of us to embrace and open our awareness to where we come from and where we are going. Not with skepticism, but with faith….belief, create our own bubble to carry us on our journey of truth, and guide us to reunite with who we truly are.

4 Alien Species Said to Already Be Here

4 Alien Species Said to Already Be Here


I may ramble, in a good way.

My entire life I have always been fascinated with the belief we are not alone in the universe nor have we we ever been.

Watching the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” at a tender age, I always wondered since I saw ghosts, how come I didn’t see aliens?

Well to answer that question, I should probably write a book because I can say back in 1999 my question was disturbingly answered. It never was “why didn’t I?” It became apparent it was more of, “why couldn’t I remember?”  Yeah, I have many things to share. 

But, sorry reader, I am not ready to let the cat out of the bag just yet. This is not something I am fully ready to discuss publicly, but I may open up about it at this years Phenomenology. I am still undecided. I do know, as life is fleeting and I am not getting any younger, I would rather share my experiences, then leave this realm without saying my peace and sharing my incredible story. What I do know is…we are NOT alone. never have been and our true origins as a human species are very unsettling. 

Knowledge is power, and those “in power” are keeping it from us. 

Time to change the channel.

Moving on, this brings me to the political and military officials that have been coming forward over the years with their stories and experiences regarding, UFOs and Aliens. Yes, since 1999 I have been paying close attention to others brave enough to come forward and share the truth. I salute them for their bravery and strength to withstand ridicule and the ignorance of our worlds critics. Science is not doing something about it, our people in power aren’t sharing the truth of our universe, so it is up to the few, the brave and the blessed. 

What I find fascinating is when we take a look at evolution. Why is it hard for many to realize that all other species on our planet may have originated or fully evolved somewhere else?  In the past,  some time,  in this or other ever expanding universes? Humans are not the only species to have evolved or have a human form consisting of arms, legs and intelligence. Far from it.  Entire creation and the multiverse is so vast, one should think “logically” that anything and everything “is” possible. 

Aliens… millions of people all over the world believe they have had first hand encounters and sightings as well as the vast data in different forms recorded throughout history, in all cultures and through all religions of such encounters. They can’t all be wrong, can they? (Ancient aliens)

Give Paul Hellyer, former canadian minister of defense some credit.

Watch this video interview and let me know what you think. The reporter could have prepared a little better with more specific and less ignorant remarks. She follows the standard ridiculous questioning of skepticism with the  “oh come on, you can’t be serious” attitude that does what it can to downplay her guest and the seriousness of his statements. He is just one of hundreds of highly trained, educated, military or political figures that has something world shattering to share, and nobody takes it seriously. Media always jokes about it. Once again humanity shows how far we have come on the evolutionary scale of, we are the center of the universe and no on can tell me otherwise. For once I would like to see the press take a serious look at this topic and show some respect to someone who has a highly respected background and comes from an area of government that obviously housed “many” dark-top secret…. secrets. 

Science still hasn’t figured out the brain entirely nor where consciousness comes from,  along with still not knowing what the hell is at the bottom of all our oceans but yet, we think we know that we are the only lifeforms out there in the universe?! That is not logic, that is ignorance. 

Paul briefly mentions Aliens that are called The Nordics, The Tall Whites, The Short Greys, Tall Greys and maybe even the Reptilians. NOTE: There are believed to be over 80 different alien species by various sources  that have been identified in one way or another. Meaning, the tally is not definite, there may be more. Yikes, blows the mind – doesn’t it?

Consciousness with No Detectable Brain?

Consciousness with No Detectable Brain?


The predominant view amongst neuroscientists is that human consciousness is a product of the electrical activity of the brain. They call it an “emergent property” of grey matter. The basic assumption there is that if you take approximately 100 billion nerve cells and you wire them together through a prodigious network of connection, consciousness somehow “emerges” spontaneously from that complexity. One neuron is not conscious, but 100 billion, taken together, are.

This materialist theory of consciousness is up against some formidable challenges, all happily ignored by the mainstream materialist neuroscientists. First and foremost, there is a fundamental logic obstacle known as the “explanatory gap”. In two words: Can a motorcycle fly? Obviously not. Can 100 billion of them fly? No, they still can’t. So then, how is it that an unconscious piece of matter – a nerve cell – becomes conscious if connected to other equally unconscious pieces of matter?

There are a lot more challenges to the mind = brain equation, and some are so huge, so self-evident that they should force a little reflection on the part of our materialist colleagues. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen much. With this post, I will tell you about one of these formidable challenges. More will come in future posts.

In April 2007, Science, possibly the most reputed scientific journal on the planet, came out with an interesting – to say the least – article. It tells about the remarkable research conducted at the University of Sheffield by neurology professor the late Dr. John Lorber.

“There’s a young student at this university,” says Lorber, “who has an IQ of 126, has gained a first-class honors degree in mathematics, and is socially completely normal. And yet the boy has virtually no brain.” The student’s physician at the university noticed that the youth had a slightly larger than normal head, and so referred him to Lorber, simply out of interest. “When we did a brain scan on him,” Lorber recalls, “we saw that instead of the normal 4.5-centimeter thickness of brain tissue between the ventricles and the cortical surface, there was just a thin layer of mantle measuring a millimeter or so. His cranium is filled mainly with cerebrospinal fluid.”

The student was suffering from hydrocephalus, the condition in which the cerebrospinal fluid, instead of circulating around the brain and entering the bloodstream, becomes dammed up inside.

Normally, the condition is fatal in the first months of childhood. Even where an individual survives he or she is usually seriously handicapped. Somehow, though, the Sheffield student had lived a perfectly normal life and went on to gain an honours degree in mathematics. This case is by no means as rare as it seems.

In 1970, a New Yorker died at the age of 35. He had left school with no academic achievements, but had worked at manual jobs such as building janitor, and was a popular figure in his neighbourhood. Tenants of the building where he worked described him as passing the days performing his routine chores, such as tending the boiler, and reading the tabloid newspapers. When an autopsy was performed to determine the cause of his premature death he, too, was found to have practically no brain at all. Professor Lorber has identified several hundred people who have very small cerebral hemispheres but who appear to be normal intelligent individuals. Some of them he describes as having ‘no detectable brain’, yet they have scored up to 120 on IQ tests.

No-one knows how people with ‘no detectable brain’ are able to function at all, let alone to graduate in mathematics. That is, if one assumes that mind function are solely the product of the physical brain…

Night of the Wormhole

Night of the Wormhole

I lead an interesting life. Sometimes things surprise me and sometimes strange things don’t.

On November 7, 2014 at approximately 9:35pm I was driving home from dinner when I witnessed an incredible event.

I feel this occurred because of ever-expanding consciousness. Consciousness? Why consciousness? Lets start with earlier that night, as this is important and I feel relevant to what transpired.

Around 6pm that day the dinner started. We had a nice evening at a club house gathering, wonderful food, fine wine and good conversation. During the night I leaned over to my step dad and began chatting with him about a book I started reading called “Millenial Hospitality” by Charles Hall. For the next 45 minutes we delved deeply into the mystery of the military, UFOs, Aliens and cover-ups. The one detail I must point out is I shared with him something I read about Ben Rich,  the second director of Lockheeds Skunk Works from 1975-1991. Allegedly he had stated the following after a lecture. 

When Ben Rich was asked how can UFOs fly (more properly how is space travel possible?) Ben responded to the man  “How does ESP work?” The man guessed…, “all points in space and time are connected!?” Ben quickly responded with “thats how it works!” What is interesting about this is that we are finding out in Quantum Physics and Mechanics that particles are all connected. There seems to be a connection here. UFOs may in fact travel great distances by portals or bending A to B. Creating Doorways and eliminating the great distance we tend to think of in our old way of thought regarding travel.


Eyewitness to Ben Riches statement: 


My step dad was a fighter pilot during the Korean War and flew reconnaissance missions in Albuquerque,  New Mexico. During some of his missions he witnessed and chased what we have come to call Foo Fighters. Large balls of light, glowing crafts that moved with incredible speeds. Having encountered these things many years ago and quit aware of the secrecy kept over the past 50+ years he has found it fascinating and wishes that they would just come forth with it. That night we discussed his experiences once again. 

As the evening moved on, we were getting a bit tired as we had been there since 6pm. I said my goodbyes, gave my hugs, and headed out to drive home. I left the music off in my car and decided to focus on my life, reminiscing on many past thoughts. I turned into my subdivision and drove down the streets and closer to the turn into my neighborhood. Something caught my attention, you know that intuition that someone is staring at you. I turned slightly to the right and saw this bright light in the sky. My first thought, it’s a plane. But, what an extremely bright plane! The glare gleemed larger and brighter then normal. There were no blinking lights. No colors, just solid white.

It was moving very slowly. It seemed egg shaped, but a little longer cylinder wise. I looked away but then was drawn back to it. I slowed down my car. “huh,” I said out loud, “That doesn’t seem like a plane.” It then began to speed up in a horizontal motion to the left. All of a sudden another light began to appear out of the blackness. Like a pinlight spinning around and getting bigger. It quickly formed into an inverted funnel. I saw whisps of what looked like clouds mixed in with it. A bluish tint to the whirling light. The light had texture and as it spun a hole began to appear in side it like an inverted tornado. Like a whirlpool, yet upside down. I was dumbfounded. This inverted funnel, was manifesting above the object.  The light, I would now like to call this light a UFO, because what it did next was in no way a plane. This glowing UFO moving horizontally made a 90 degree arc straight up towards this inverted funnel in the sky. As it slowed down a little bit moving straight up into it, the white light began to illuminate and light up the entrance to the spinning hole. Sparks or lightening began to shoot off around the funnel as if static or the UFO itself was affecting everything around it.  As it did this the blue color changed from a light cyan to a dark and slightly bright deep red. The red was NOT coming from the UFO. The UFO was pure white, but as it entered into the hole the light from the UFO illuminated the hole in the funnel and I could now see the actual shape of the UFO and a line around the craft. Like a capline. The UFO was almost cylinder but very short, egg shaped size but had a ring around the top of it like a cap. I could also see that this inverted funnel was a complete form all its own. As it entered into the hole the light of the UFO completely vanished as it was now up into the hole (the funnel) and then the red turned back into a light cyan blue and the hole quickly imploded back from where it came from. It was gone. No lights, trailing…no nothing. Gone as if it never happened.

The dark sky was now back to normal. It was at this point,  I realized as I came to a stop and that my mouth was open the whole time in awe. The entire event lasted about 30 seconds if I remember correctly. The hole only appeared and existed for about maybe 15 seconds. This UFO appeared high above a forest in my neighborhood, which ironically is directly across the street from the police station and a water plant for the subdivision. There was no obstruciton of view where I sat in my car, all open field and a straight view to what I saw. (see photo below)



 Simple drawing of the trajectory of the craft seen on Nov 7, 2014 around 9:35pm 



Here is a daytime photo of the exact spot I was at when it occurred but with clouds. I do not believe there were any clouds that night as sky was black.



I then turned down my street, as I was only about 200 yards in a direct line away from my house and said to myself, “Cool I saw a UFO” and for some crazy reason didn’t think anything else about it. I walked into my house, looked at the clock 9:45pm and said “Okay, good to know, doesn’t seem like any missing time.” 

I went to bed later and didn’t think about it. This was Friday night. Saturday passed bye. 

Sunday morning when I woke up, Friday nights event popped into my head and I was perplexed. “Wait a minute, I saw a UFO friday night. Why am I not more excited about it?” I began thinking about what I saw and then thought. “The blue turning to red. The UFO disappeared.” I went to my computer and did some searches on UFO sightings and UFOs disappearing and quickly realized, I may have seen a portal,  a wormhole. Did I see a wormhole? I had no idea. Never seen one before. I had nothing to compare it to until now. 

Upon reading on the internet and learning about wormholes and portals, I have to believe I did see a portal. It is the only explanation I can think of. A wormhole as science would call it, opened up and the UFO shot right up into it at a 90 degree angle. Why do I firmly believe it is a wormhole? Well these images I found online are so similar to it, you couldn’t paint a better picture for me unless you changed it to red and then back to the cyan blue. It is almost identical.  Here are some images that help illustrate as best I can to what I saw. 





What struck me that a wormhole could be a gateway to either somewhere in space, or a dimension,  is the following. While listening to one of the Spirit Science videos about dimensions, it stated that dimensions can be accessed at 90 degrees. The UFO flew up 90 degrees into this portal and then…vanished. Coincidence? Maybe not.

 Watch at 4:32 – Spirit Science 7 – Dimensions


What is even crazier is earlier that night I was telling my step dad about how they travel, via Ben Riches statement comparing to ESP. All points are connected. What if connecting those points, is a wormhole or a portal? I feel deeply that I witnessed just that.  So how and why did I see this? I cannot answer with 100% certainty, but if we look at the entire evening, my conversation with my step dad, reading the book all week, asking questions in mind and searching for answers. My awareness needed to grow. I was asking the universe for answers. This seeking, created an attraction the universe fulfilled. Many questions can arise from this. Was the UFO aware I was watching it? Did anyone else see the UFO? Did I see the UFO because my consciousness was in a state of expansion and now capable of seeing it? Many more questions, but I just don’t have “all” the answers. We get them in pieces. 

Having had paranormal experiences my whole life I have learned many years ago, if there is something I don’t understand, all I have to do is ask the universe and they will either show me or present the answer in some shape or form.

Look into the Flower of Life, which I feel explains this expansion of consciousness, awareness and the ever growing expansion that experience gives us. The more we ask for, the more we bring to us…through experience.

In your life, what questions do you have? What experiences would you like to be answered?

My Best EVPS Vol. 2 & 3   2004-2006

My Best EVPS Vol. 2 & 3 2004-2006

New set of EVP volumes posted on You Tube covering the years 2004-2006.

Volume 2 includes some of my favorites. The children’s voices at Culver Studios captured on a video camera I left in the hallway, is insane. We were not able to determine who or why the children were there. The statement is clear and chilling with “don’t buy my coffin.”  I include more EVPs from Alcatraz and a remarkable EVP I captured right after I took a photo of a strange anomaly on camera. Hotel Coronado was a life changing location for my Co-host Gail Porter when we did Dead Famous and contacted Kate Morgan in the very room she haunts. Listen to the spirits remarks. 

Volume 3 presents some tongue in cheek EVPs from the Bird Cage. A location I would love to go back to. EVPs captured at Boothill Cemetery while I was helping spirits cross and the Winchester house were we heard a voice and captured it on the recorder. The potter schoolhouse is the famous location where the movie the birds was filmed.

EVP research is the gateway between our world and theirs. 





My Best EVPs Vol. 1 1978-2006

My Best EVPs Vol. 1 1978-2006

Some close friends have suggested I post some of the Best EVPs I have captured over the years.

You could say I have taken it for granted that speaking and traveling the past 10 years everyone knows my work in ITC and the types of EVPs I get. I have found, this is not the case.

Not everyone has seen me speak or attended my ghost hunts.

To satisfy some of the diehards and my fellow investigators, I plan to post,  periodically,  videos compiling some of the Best EVPs I have ever recorded. I will then move onto DRVPs. Responses captured during spirit box sessions. I am not sure how long it will take to post these, but rest assured you will get the opportunity to hear some amazing communications with spirits. 

But first a little brief history:

I recorded my first EVP on a reel to reel player back in 1976 after staying up late night and seeing a special on ghosts and people that were capturing voices of the dead. (My parents sold the Reel to reel player in 1979 in a garage sale).

I recorded my second and third evps around 1977-78. I still have a couple of the recordings.

I had numerous audio tapes of my childhood damaged in 1984 from a numbskull accident that occurred in my bedroom that is quite embarrassing. Let me put it this way, I never should have hid open alcohol from after a high school party underneath my bed next to my childhood box of audio cassettes. Yes, the dumb things we do as teenagers. You guessed it, it spilled all over the cassettes. The tapes were ruined due to the sticky residue when they dried. With I still had these tapes and all the Ouija board sessions recorded on cassette tapes. All gone except one. I recorded just about everything as a kid back then. 

In the Early 1990’s I recorded some of my ghost hunting and investigating and have them still on audio tape.

Majority of my data from 2005 to present has been backed up on a Drobo External drive and is in wave format. 

I found out the hard way back in 2007 how important it is to properly back up digital data, when one of my TB drives crashed, causing me to lose many years of work…forever!  A WB 1 TB drive, broken up into two 500GB drives is not the best way to store anything. For some reason, WB thought it was a smart idea to have information split between the two drives. The problem with that is, if one drive crashes the other drive can’t access the missing information. After sending it to three different diagnostic companies, they had the unfortunate news to tell me, there was nothing they could do. Needless to say I also lost a lot of personal, important photos and precious video footage of my father as well. 

I have tons of audio from investigations I did during the TV show Dead Famous and Psychic Kids. Lost all the audio I did during the Manson Murders Episode of Ghost Hunters due to the crashed drive. Never recorded during the Ghost Adventures Live. Which I should have. I have mind blowing EVPs from the episodes of Psychic Kids, that never made it on air. Not to mention the 60+ events I did all over the USA at some of Americas most haunted locations. Queen Mary, Stanley Hotel, Waverly Hills, etc. Some great stuff. 

Now I have to be realistic, there is no way in heaven I can get to all of them, probably not even half of them. There is most likely over a thousand hours of audio. Not to mention, the 15+ colleges I investigated each year dating back to 2007. 

Some great…amazing…compelling stuff that I am excited to share with you, over time. 


This EVP Volume 1 contains some audio from my childhood around 1977-78 and the years I started working on Dead Famous, where I investigated for the first time the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA

It also includes Excalibur Night Club in Chicago as well as some private investigations at Bachelors Grove Cemetery in Midlothian, IL and Hooters on Wells Street in the city of Chicago, IL. 

EVP research has always been my interest and passion.

Pray for the dead

Pray for the dead


Prayers for the Dead


Say one of these prayers after if you receive any responses during your spirit box session that say “help…..pray/prayer”……or “purgatory.”


Catholic Prayer for the Dead:


God our Father, Your power brings us to birth, 

Your providence guides our lives, and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence, 

their lives change but do not end. 

I pray in hope for my family, 

relatives and friends, 

and for all the dead known to You alone. 


In company with Christ, 

Who died and now lives, 

may they rejoice in Your kingdom, 

where all our tears are wiped away. 

Unite us together again in one family, 

to sing Your praise forever and ever.




El Maleh Rachamim is the actual Jewish prayer for the dead:

God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens’ heights, bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Shechinah, amid the ranks of the holy and the pure, illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the souls of our beloved and our blameless who went to their eternal place of rest. May You who are the source of mercy shelter them beneath Your wings eternally, and bind their souls among the living, that they may rest in peace. 

And let us say: 



The language used in the prayers for the departed can be very reserved, but will bring peace, rest and freedom from pain and sorrow for certain spirits. Cite the following from the Liturgy of St James:

Remember, O Lord, the God of Spirits and of all Flesh, those whom we have remembered and those whom we have not remembered, men of the true faith, from righteous Abel unto to-day; do thou thyself give them rest there in the land of the living, in thy kingdom, in the delight of Paradise, in the bosom of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, our holy fathers, from whence pain and sorrow and sighing have fled away, where the light of thy countenance visiteth them and always shineth upon them.
