Instrumental TransCommunication

The Value of Instrumental TransCommunication

Instrumental TransCommunication (ITC) records the voices of people living in the afterlife. The recordings bring great comfort to people living on the earth plane. Those who hear the voices of their loved ones feel greatly relieved to receive the contacts proving their loved ones are alive and well, just living in another place.

ITC also is a clear demonstration of the reality that people continue to live after the transition called death. As the clarity and availability of the communication through electronic devices become greater, greater numbers of people will realize we are eternal beings, our loved ones are living on the next plane of life, and we should live together in love, peace, and joy. Hearing the voices of people gone from the earth plane is profoundly moving.

AREI has three goals for ITC:

  1. Refine the methods being used successfully today so they result in clear, easily accessible recordings of the voices of people living on the next plane of life.
  2. Discover new methods of receiving and recording voices of people living on the next plane of life.
  3. Train professionals and the public in how to record the voices.

The pioneering work in recording voices is in its infancy. The primary limitation to progress has been the lack of funding for the audio specialists who could assist in refining the technology and procedures.

Examples of the Researchers’ Recordings

Example recordings follow, done by researcher Sheri Perl. You will hear the background noise of vocal nonsense syllables. They’re cut up words people spoke, but there are no whole words in the background noise. Those in spirit transform the meaningless noise into words.

Researchers are able to record the voices in direct response to questions, at will. The responses come to nearly all questions asked, most often after the question is asked, but sometimes before it is asked, because those on the next plane of life are responding to the questioner’s thoughts, not their spoken words.

In the first example, the researcher is using background meaningless syllables created from a Portuguese recording. The researcher asks whether the people speaking from the other side can use the Portuguese recording to produce English words.

Question: “Say something in English so I know I can use this.”

Answer: “I speak English.”

In this example, the researcher is holding up something. She asks them to identify what it is:

Question: “Right now I’m holding something. Can you tell he what it is?”

Answer: “Cellphone”


At times, the researchers ask for simple word repetitions to test the connection. This is an example:

Question: “Please repeat: doctor.”

Answer: “Doctor”

The researcher has a dialogue about the questions she is asking.

Question: “Do you like it when I ask you questons?”

Answer: “Oh, yes.”

The researcher has a friendly dialogue.

Question: “How’s everbody doing?”

Answer: “Everyone’s happy.”

We know that the psychic researcher Montague Keen is cooperating on the other side with this work. The researcher asks if Keen is there.

Question: “Montague Keen, if you can hear me, can you say your name.”

Answer: “Monti here.” (with a distinctly British accent)

Examples of Sheri Perl’s Recordings for Parents

AREI researcher Sheri Perl has been successfully using Instrumental TransCommunication to record the messages from children who have passed away to their parents. Sheri is using the North American Station for transmission and recording the voices on her laptop. The voices are most often one to three words, with some very clear statements and some less clear because of limitations of the signal coming from the Station. This is a very early time in the development of our link to the North American Station on the other side. Anyone who listens to the voices must understand that many are difficult to hear and some can be heard only by a trained ear. We’re expecting the transmissions to be clearer as the Station matures.

Sheri asks parents who want to connect with their children in spirit to call her. She puts the phone up to a recording microphone so the parents can ask their children questions. Sheri records the questions and the background noise. The parent and Sheri don’t hear the child respond at that time. When Sheri plays back the recording she has made, the child’s response may follow the parent’s question. The responses are often difficult to hear. Sheri shares only those she can verify as clear enough to be heard easily.

Example recordings follow. Here, also, you will hear the background noise of vocal nonsense syllables. In the example that follows, a mother speaking over the phone begins her session with her son in spirit. This is her first statement and the response Sheri and the parent heard when they played back the recording. You will hear the mother say “Hi Sweety” and his immediate response, “Hi mom.”

Another mother on the telephone says, “Alexandria, are you happy?” You will hear “All the time.”

A mother asks, “Are you in Heaven.” The answer, “I am.”

A mother asks, “I love you, and I just want to know, do you still love me?” The answer, “I love you.”

You will hear a child in spirit say, “We’re all proud of you.”

The mother asks, “Adam, it’s Mom. I want to know, are you at peace?” The response is “I am Mommy.”

In this example, the mother on the telephone says, “Hi Justin, it’s Mom.” You will hear “Hi Mom.”

You will hear the child in spirit say, “The confidence started in you.”

Children in the Afterlife Respond to a Roll Call

Recently, Sheri asked the children of parents she is working with to come through with their names. She has had over 300 responses and is in the process of categorizing them now.





This is Jacob

I’m Libby.




Tom’s here.



I’m Laurie


Things are great here.

I’m here mama.

Bye mom.

Parent Reactions to Sheri Perl’s Recordings

Sheri Perl, AREI ITC Communication Facilitator, is regularly having parents call in questions for their children living in the afterlife. The responses are remarkable. Examples of the responses are at http://www.afterliferesearch.org/parents-link-children-using-itc/
The parents send responses to the recordings Sheri provides for them. Below is a sample of some of the responses:

Parent 1 ~ “I have read the text and started listening – this is so, so very amazing!! It sounds just like Brent’s voice in the one where he said that he was with my Dad – and this has been my deep feeling that he HAS been with my Dad, so that alone is such an affirmation. Then to hear Brent’s voice saying the word “Dad” – how perfect!! My heart is singing and I want to listen to more and let you know if I hear Brent’s voice again.”

Parent 2 ~ ” What a gift! I cannot tell you in words (wish I could give you a huge hug) what you have done for Lester and me. First off YES, It was Stephen! So many things he said. That no one knew!!!

Parent 3 ~ So much of this is Ben and his dad…the references to Art and Arthur I think are my late husband but the Danny reference I think is referencing your son….And the “Gerber” and “Doritos” messages, when Ben was young everyone said he looked like the Gerber baby and Ben’s favorte snack was Doritos…Truly amazy and so much validation…thank you sheri!

Parent 4 ~ This first evp blew away all I expected ..took my breathe away…no mistaking it..It seems its not as clear to those who didn’t know him..but there is absolutely no mistaking his voice for me his mother…I had to leave work and sit in my var and catch my breathe and calm my heart ..Even though his answer was short it vibrated throughout my whole body to hear him I feared his voice might sound different as you warned me sometimes it does…but this first evp I heard was the voice I knew and loved for 27 years!!!! My question was…Justin, do you come visit me? And he replied in his earthly voice….All the time…that is everything to me !!

Parent 5 ~ “One of the many messages to come from Simon in my reading was ‘It’s your favourite son.’ I knew as soon as I heard that it was from him. There was always a running joke in our family that Simon was The Chosen One. Some of his closest friends have told me that he had said to them ‘I’m the favourite.’ It confirmed for me that it was him-without a doubt.”

Parent 6 (who was asked why she felt it was her son whose voice was recorded) ~ The best evidence I felt coming from my son through the EVP were 1) his voice was recognizable every time he said ” I Love You.” 2) He asked about his children, both of them. 3) He asked me if I was proud of him. He would always ask me that question when he was a children growing up. 4) As you know my son was an drug addict. He had seen me cry a lot and I would tell him I would do anything do get him off of heroin. He would always answer, ‘I am sorry Mom.’ He said that so may times in his life and again on the EVP. 6) Because I was raising my grandchild ( my son’s kids) I had always felt guilty in many of my decisions to protect them from my own sons ravished drug use. Again he answered… ‘What you did mother was the right thing.” 7) I had a vision months after my son passed. It was of my son kneeling before a man in a white robe. My son also was in a white robe. My son was a Christian. I remember thinking to myself. ‘Has my son met Jesus?’ In the EVP he clearly states. Jesus found me. Omg !! 8) just about every morning between 3-4am I wake up wide awake. So awake that I just get up for the day. My son asks in the EVP if I would like to sleep in….yes yes yes I would Brad. LOL. I still don’t know why he wakes me up thou. 9) I have had conversations with my son, either in my head or our loud. I always have gotten answers. But I second guess myself if it was really him. Once again in the EVP he answered … ‘I hear mom.’ So awesome.”

Parent 7 ~ “Jerry’s little brother who was skeptical turned white when he heard his voice on the first question. He called me and said ‘Oh Wow Mom…its him…maybe he can help everyone find peace again, I didn’t expect to hear my brother, Mom.'”

Parent 8 ~ The first thing about the reading that made me positive you had gotten Luke is the multitude of comments he made. He always was hyper-verbal! So here’s a list of my impressions:

When he said “I’m Luke” – that sounds like him.

Also, when he said “I love it here” — that sounds EXACTLY like him.

The numerous times he expressed his love for me is very much Luke. We told each other we loved each all the time. Lots of hugs too. 🙂

He said “I don’t need money” followed by “thank you for offering.” Luke used to ask me or my husband if he could have $4 (or some other low odd-ball amount of money) and we would always ask him if he needed more than that. He would always say, no thank you, but thanks for offering. Only my husband, Luke and I would know what that means. It was extraordinary when I heard that.”

He stated “We’re off Ritalin.” Luke was struggling with drug addiction when he died. I think that was his way of telling me they ALL are healed once they leave their bodies. It was reassuring and another way of him letting me know it was really him.

When I said goodbye to him, he responded “Goodbye mom, you’re on my mind. I’ll call you. You can feel that I come.” He always said “I’ll call you,” always. And I think he was again, reassuring me, with the “You can feel that I come”. I CAN feel him when he’s around. He was confirming that for me.

There is no doubt in my mind that the clips are Luke. Except for the one when I told our children I love them and the many voices answered ‘We love you too.’ That one gives me wonderful chills. So much love.

Other connections have been with spouses. An example of the response of a spouse to the recordings follows:

Wife ~ “Sheri’s work directly corresponded with conversations I had had with my husband while he was alive. The phrases and words that came up were the same we had used as a nickname for a place and special ritual with had with our child. He also said our child was “a joy” a lot and that is definitely the same. I am so grateful for this words don’t even describe.”

Projects Needing Funding

Refine the methods being used successfully today so they result in clear, easily accessible recordings of the voices of people living on the next plane of life.

Researchers in communication with people in the afterlife know Instrumental TransCommunication is successful and hold promise of making communication easy and widely available. In the past 100 years, a number of promising technological devices and procedures have been developed that have allowed researchers to record the voices of people living on the next plane of life (Examples). However, the methods have not been fully developed. Today, most have been abandoned. AREI proposes identifying all of the methods that have been developed, having audio technicians and other specialists bring them to full operating capacity, refining them so they communicate successfully with people living on the next plane of life, and disseminating the technology to professionals and the public for use to communicate with loved ones in the life after this life.

The methods being used by researchers such as Sonia Rinaldi and Sheri Perl are working effectively now. They must be refined so they are even more successful and can be easily used by professionals and the public.

Discover new methods of receiving and recording voices of people living on the next plane of life.

Because of rapid advances in communication technology today, new devices and methods are likely available that have not yet been discovered. We know that teams of researchers on the next planes of life are actively working to cooperate in helping humankind discover and use these communication devices. AREI will encourage development of instruments using sound, video, and other media by offering grants to developers who believe they have the specifications for a device that will successfully communicate with the afterlife.

Train professionals and the public in how to record the voices.

The methods of Instrumental TransCommunication being used today by researchers such as Sonia Rinaldi and Sheri Perl are successful enough that AREI wants to disseminate information about them so more researchers can engage in working with them and members of the public who are able to use them understanding that they must still be refined may make use of them. The methods can be taught easily. They don’t require technology knowledge. The components are equipment people already have, and the additions needed are free. As more people use the technology, individuals will emerge who are talented with the methods and advance our knowledge of their use. Disseminating the information will require video training programs and support.
