The following two comments are in reference to John
F. Kennedy, Jr.'s article about Princess Diana in the February 2003
issue of the magazine.
"Yes, I find your mag absolutely uplifting and it totally
verifies the message of Princess Diana's Message of Peace. Diana
is a warrior for peace and I am like her personal secretary now.
It is as though Heaven stepped in, through the goodness of Princess
Diana. She is very much watching over our country and our world
and is influencing the top diplomats she knew in life with her
wisdom on the war on terror. She is waging peace for the nations
as an angel looking down upon us all. Her diplomatic suggestions
are a true and viable answer for the diplomats, to save us from
this terrible war on the planet." (Marcia McMahon is a spiritual channel for Princess Diana
and has now published two books of channeled messages from Diana.

"John Jr.'s interview with Lady Diana prompted me to finalize
in my own mind a lot of details about work 'The Boss' gave me
to do with students - I realized I can do it on videotape, and
publish a book of my own Opinion Columns to be sold along with
the presentation, ones that will benefit teens. Part of my 'job'
is to convince them to sign a contract with themselves regarding
celibacy, no drug or substance abuse, and to do their very best
in all aspects of life. To clearly state their goals, and to read
their contract once every few months to remind themselves, when
they're tempted. A space for a date they gave up, and a few lines
for the reason why - and then another line for the date they resume,
and what their extension is, to give themselves the full five
years (I might do three year ones too). So, while Diana is in
the Other Realms wanting to help the children, God has already
given me the direction of one way to help. He first told me almost
a year ago now, but I thought I had to go out and do all this
in person - it was only after I read JFK Jr.'s interview with
Diana that these plans solidified more..."

"Do you think that any of the upstairs
contributors ever 'hear' what we, the audience, are thinking as
we read their words? As an example, I always enjoy hearing
about Lynne and her thoughts and actions. I try to visualize
her as she tells us another interesting situation and then I try
to 'send' her my energy. I would like her to know that I
care about her growth and I wish that I could ease some
of her anxiety. With so many readers of your e-mag,
reading the same thing around the same period of time, some
of our thoughts must reach her." (J.C., California,
It was thoughtful of you to ask about me.
don't know how to answer your question. I don't know if I hear
you reading my words. One problem is a matter of delay from the
time I said them to Father Murray and the time you read the excerpts.
Secondly, sometimes my words are edited. It isn't that I don't
recognize my own words but I don't go back over my visits and
conversations. On the other hand, I do feel and sense kind thoughts
and good wishes. I am not strong enough nor sensitive enough to
identify the source or the person sending me the kind thoughts.
I have a name for the warm feelings. I call them glow plugs or
the warm and fuzzies. They make me feel good and they last a long
I thank you for your concern. With the passing of each day, I
get a little bit better. Please take care
of yourself and I ask for God's blessing for you."
The following is an excerpt
from a September 11, 2004
message from Princess Diana channeled by Marcia McMahon.
"So whilst Americans remember this day
of absolute horror for New York, Washington and Pennsylvania,
we in spirit wish to assure readers that those loved ones are
very much a part of us now, and many many of the firefighters,
the brave workers in the Twin Towers are in clusters in heaven.
These same souls continue their work here, and have had many many
challenges on this side as well. Many volunteer their time working
with the children on this side, and others are writing for the
e-zine, called The Stars Still Shine Magazine, channeled by the
great Fr. Murray, aka, Robert Murray. And we all recommend that
wonderful magazine." (Copyright © 2004 Marcia

In response to Mark Twain's
stories in the The Stars Still Shine Magazine,
a reader, Marcia
McMahon, asked Mark a question. He died in 1910. His answer
is new and from the Other Side.
I have a question for Mark Twain. I have read
parts of his great work on Joan of Arc, and been very inspired
from it. Many people never knew that Twain wrote on her.
I wonder has he met Joan, or the part of Joan
that still exists there in heaven. He obviously had a great love
and respect for her work, and believed in her.
Very clever that Twain.
Mark Twain's answer:
"April 9, 2004 2:44 P.M.
You see, flattery will get you anywhere. You
and your question roused me out of my stupor. Although I need
the cooperation of Robert, I am responding to your question about
Joan d'Arc or Joan of the Rainbow.
I haven't come across Joan and I assume she
has risen to heights greater than mine. I am not surprised by
this because I, in spite of my herculean efforts, remain at a
basic level. It could very well be that they are not ready for
old Mark Twain and are preparing a very large feast and ceremony
for my elevation. I'm sure these preparations take time and I,
if nothing else, am a patient person, or soul, whatever the case
During my, now behind me, youth, I was surrounded
and greatly influence by women. In my old age I was surrounded
by women. You might say that I was always surrounded by influential
women. During my travels and stay in England, I was told by an
Anglican Prelate that God was an Englishman and had protected
their Sceptered Isle since Roman days. I of course presented an
argument that God was an American and the battle was on. He was
sneaky about the whole fracas and anointed me with Holy water
and that, besides nearly drowning me, dampened me down considerably.
Here is the point I am getting to; This Church Prelate admitted
that he admired Joan of Arc. As perverse as I am, I decided to
prove him wrong and that started my research into the life of
that wonderful and courageous woman.
Mark Twain Esq."
In response to the Joe Louis
article by John F. Kennedy, Jr. in the April 2003 issue of The
Stars Still Shine Magazine, a reader asked the contributors
of the magazine who are in the afterlife why they feel the need
to continue to do physical work such as cooking, cleaning, running
or exercising. David responded and here is his answer:
"I specifically asked to answer your e-mail.
Where you may look forward to having what you perceive as a life
of leisure, once you cross over things take on a different shade.
There is so much involved in the doing of anything
and so little involved in having things done for you. We tried
having everything done for us and found something lacking. We
found lots of things lacking. Let me count the ways.
Let me take your question of why we keep on
doing physical work. Ask a runner why she or he wants to run.
The answer is not because I want to get from A to B. I could travel
by bus, car or another means that would transport my body without
having to do much. The runners say they run because of the 'high'
it gives them when they reach a certain point in their run. They
become addicted to running because it makes them feel good. We
do physical exercise for various reasons, but mostly because it
makes us feel good both mentally and physically. When we serve
others, we feel useful, needed and are giving of ourselves. That
my dear, is worth getting off our collective butts and moving.
Enforced idleness becomes a form of punishment.
It truly does. We also do some chores because we take pleasure
in the routine. Beside that, we still like to complain and just
love to have an excuse to 'bitch' about the routine things we
have to do.
Some of us don't do all the things we say we
do. With present company excluded, some of us fake the chores
and try to impress others with the hours of hard work we put in.
Some of us have been known to work twenty-five hours in a twenty-four-hour
We also like to continue doing the things we
did while alive on Earth. Humans like to have familiar things
around them and like to remember what it was like in the good
old days on Earth. We do acquire selective memories of our times
on Earth. As more time passes, the more the immediate past life
becomes quite rosy. So the few hours we spent at the local health
club, the exercise machines that were used as clothes racks, the
one marathon we stumbled through in great pain while on Earth
become changed over time. The few hours at the health club somehow
become a year of great camaraderie with fellow health nuts. The
exercise machine becomes a wonder machine that we used religiously
every day to tone up our muscles. The marathon becomes our moment
in the sun in our memory.
If by some chance you still don't buy all this,
then you can always blame the editors for, well, whatever you
With much affection and great exercise,
Some Readers' Comments about the magazine.
"...I cannot find the words to truly explain the overwhelming
feeling I have when I read these channeled experiences. I
have tried to talk with my friends about the book and your
magazine, but they just don't want to believe. However,
I believe. I must let you know how much this channeled
information means to me, and to thank you from the bottom of my
heart. I first discovered channeled info from Edgar Cayce
(I named my little dog after him, Cayce) and Shirley Maclaine.
I found your Web site while surfing the Web last year.
I immediately purchased your book! It has changed my
life. I often recall the words Michael has said and use
his experiences to try and incorporate them into my own life.
I have read many books about crossing over, but none have
shed the light on experiences such as these. Now I
ask myself, why would crossing over end our experiences to
grow? It just makes sense that we MUST learn life's lessons
to love without judgement and respect all beings...If I could
reach through this notebook monitor, I would give you (James)
and your father a great big hug. Thank you for being here,
and listening to that there is to hear. I am so excited
about these readings! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Peace,
Love and Light to you. BTW, JFK was an amazing interview!!
How very lucky you are to be a part of this channeling/drawing
experience! I wish I were so lucky!"

"Thank you for making such a great
magazine. I think it's amazing to hear the thoughts and feelings
of people as they create a new life in the afterlife. I'm still
pretty new to opening my eyes beyond the physical and I think
your magazine is a great way of building a bridge between the
I have read Bruce Moen's books about his journeys into the
afterlife and I think it's interesting to make comparisons and
find common ground between your experiences. I hope you will keep
expanding and I will surely keep reading your magazine."
(Jacob Wind, Denmark)
"I found the information on Nancy and Pemby
very interesting. I hope that you will write more on them in the
new magazine." (J.B., Illinois, USA)
"Congratulations! I'm impressed that you were all able
to get this published by now. I am so eager to read the magazine!!
Thanks for all your wonderful efforts and good work."
