"Change cannot be avoided in life. So do not resist change, embrace it."
- The daily message from Neale Donald Walsch, 9 Nov 2012, after Martine's last major surgery
Martine lived life ... food, drink, social occasions and her puppies
The morning of 30 January 2013, at 7:54, Martine Kohlenberger, now 68 years of age, finally released her silver cord, to transcend the bonds to earth, body and mind, to become Resurrected as one with the Light of Creation, again, so that she may experience her Next Grandest Adventure(s) as a part of Everlasting Life, within the context of The Love that is All-That-Is, was and ever shall be !
Let it be known that Martine sends her love to all who miss her, even you as you read this. She is now only a thought away, linked through light and lightness, by the vibrations of love for all things coming into perfect order, timing and placement.

About 60 days after Martine's last breath on earth, I had a conversation with Dr. Peebles, through Summer Bacon. Among other things we discussed an appropriate memorial for Reverend Martine. Here is a portion of our conversation:
(DR P) If you are to pass away before your money is spent, which is a possibility here, you can simply give it over to the church.
(Me) Oh, I had not thought of that. I've been looking at that and considering the possibility of giving the money to the children.
(DR P) Yes, yes, she knows that. She says that she would like it for the church "because that is our legacy".
(17:07) (Me) Oh, OK, so that's why she wanted a picture of us [way back in May 2012] (framed).
(Dr P) Yes.
(Me) I have pictures of us in Glastonbury, so I can put that picture together.
(Dr P) She says "I like the ones of us together because that's more real."
She says make a collage, put all sorts of pictures around the center. She says "that would be lovely, too."
(Me) I presented collages at her memorials, so people could understand her life. Interestingly enough, I had a dream the other night where I was asked to sing the last song. However, I just recited the words off the cover of the book, but it was Martine who actually sung the last song, and when I joined with her in singing, it seemed like the whole room began to sing. I thought that I sang her last song at her memorials ...
(Dr P) But together you're going to have more people singing the song of life. The singing of the last song is really the last lifetime on this school called earth, my dear friend.

A MESSAGE FROM MARTINE
"Don't even try to bring me back from the dead, because I'm not dead!"
Martine wants to thank you all that thought of her in her last months, weeks and days, and/or came to her Memorials. She really was very deeply touched by this and she says that it's really interesting to be over here and see how people respond to the Afterlife and to see how appreciated she was upon the earth and to see how deeply appreciated she was by people around her. She is very excited as she is starting to realize that, now. She is very deeply touched by all this, so share that with the congregation, her friends and family. For she's been feeling, hearing and sensing all of their "love letters" that are in their hearts and in their prayers and in their words. But she says "You're the best of all" and she loves you very very much, my friend. So, would you have comments or questions?
John: Yes, I was hoping all that was true. So, has she found what she wants to do next, yet?
Dr. P: No, she's waiting for you and in the mean-time playing with the animals, enjoying the company of others that are around her, but she likes to be by herself for the most part. And she just enjoys watching and listening; "everything is just so exciting". And she doesn't want you to give up, ever, because she wants you to realize that you already know how much the church meant to her. Don't give up, ever, she doesn't want you to give up, but at some point, she says, it will be instrumental that you find somebody to take your place, at some point.
In loving memory of Martine R. Kohlenberger and the love that she was and IS still.
"Consciousness creates the body; not the other way around."

Love moves: transforming, transmuting as it transcends all time and space!
As the original tree died, we had to plant a new tree on August 3, 2016
This was 2 days before Martine and John's 21st Wedding Anneversiry ... and the beginning of the church's 16th year!

A COMMENTARY ABOUT THE MEMORIAL TREES
Rev. Martine's words given to Rev. John, through Rev. Linda McMahan
"Yes, the tree was surrounded by love but fizzled out, because the purpose was absorbed and transferred. Learn to embrace the new replacement given to you, and yes this is a metaphor for your own shift, but reality too....
Love goes on in transfered form and yet semingly impermanent as it was..."
Embrace it all is the message I felt beyond her words.
WE ARE MAGICAL CREATURES ... CREATORS ALL
"If it is time for you to go, to skip out of your physical body, your physical reality that you call life, and it's time to get on with your next adventure, then that is exactly what you shall do.
And it is all wonderful ... Wonder Full!"

Halls of Light are not only found in Heaven.
Reverend Martine Kohlenberger has ascended into the light, life and love of God-Goddess and All-That-Is, was and ever shall be, to discover new visions and versions of all the millions of wondrous possibilities and probabilities that lie within the infinite realities and Multiverses that we call "God" or "Creation".
Here, Martine is pictured, on her 15th wedding anniversary, in a hallway of Crystal Light ... lighted quartz crystals ... in the Prescott Resort, high above the City of Prescott Arizona, on an Indian Reservation.
On the morning of January 28th, she let me (Rev. John) see the wonders of what we call Heaven (her reality, for those who have the eyes to see it), where the colors are vibrant and everything, even the bushes, trees and rocks are alive with vitality, beyond the comprehension of most human beings who are fully invested in the idea that everything that matters is physical. Even the buildings were vibrant with life.
While there is physical matter, alright, not all that matters is physical, as there are many more dimensions to LIFE EVERLASTING than our minds can conceive ... many of which we are already in, right along with Martine Kohlenberger. As Jesus said, "In my Father's Kingdoms are many mansions ... of the soul".

Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day.
Though they may be unseen, unheard, they are always near.
Still loved, yet missed, they are forever dear!
In an NDE Class, someone asked, Why do beople that have seen the beautues and felt the peace of Heaven come back to earthly life? As the question was being asked, I heard the answer, from Martine, "Because LIFE is so nuch FUN!".
THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH
Becoming a human, or incarnating into physical reality, is an honoring and thus a celebration of our spirituality because becoming physical requires particular creative uses of spiritual planning and energy! So, the manifested human body thus becomes a Physical Temple of Spirit, celebrating the projection of spirit, creating "another possibility" within the spirituality of All-That-Is.
And, at the same time, other portions of our beings are always in the Universal Consciousness of All-That-IS-LOVE!
THREE YEARS LATER
Here are some revealing and inspired words about celebrating Martine's Graduation into the greater Light of Creation on 30 January 2013 ... 3 years later.
IMPRESSIONS: Martine and her soul are one and as divine as any and all other creation. She is was and always will be a part of the divinity of God-Goddess and All-That-Is. Thus, her life and existence disserves a celebration. And, as I celebrate her divinity, I also celebrate my own, and that of all Life and all Creation.
SHE NOW SAYS: "Life Rules! For, Life is everywhere undiminished, not only in the light, where you can see it, but even in the darkest places I have been in, where you can only feel it. Where ever you go, Life, Love, God EXIST! So, you may, and it is always good to, Celebrate the existence of Life, Love and God-Goddess."
So where is Heaven?
Luke 17:21 (3 translations) say ...
1) "You won't be able to say, 'Here it is!' or 'It's over there!' For the Kingdom of God is already among you." ...
2 "They can't say, 'Here it is!' or 'There it is!' You see, the kingdomof God iswithin you." ...
3) "Others may not say to you that, lo it is here or, lo there! For, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
Ref: //bible.cc/luke/17-21.htm -
DREAMS OF PARADISE This is dream 2 of 2, that Rev. John had near sunruise on the morning of 29 January, 2013
In my dream, Martine then told me that she had to take a shower and get dressed before she went out the door to go do some things that she had to do, elsewhere. She said, "You can stay here and relax, do what you need to do and catch up with me later". She then went into the shower. (No Problem?)
Then, she came out of the shower, all naked, but I noticed that her body was now all white, clean and she was revitalized and refreshed. Somehow, I do not remember seeing her get dressed, but I do remember seeing her go out the door to follow her path in that beauteous living world where everything is alive, even the rocks and earth beneath our feet. We said "Good Bye", knowing the we shall meet again ... and again.
Martine's body took its last breath of life in this world at 7:54 on January 30th, 2013, and she rests in Peace, in the bosom of everlasting Life, Light, Love and Creation.
I and here, You are there and We are ONE!
This was a message from God & Martine, received by Rev. John in a dream ... August 24th, 2013
WHAT ABOUT CHRISTIANITY?
As I (John) was leading a class, "Lost Christianities", at the college this morning (Jan 31, the morning after Martine's soul finally let go) , I was being reminded (by Martine) of some Christian terms and descriptions that she is now experiencing; some of which just may be misunderstood by humanity because of putting too many expectations and restrictions on them.
So, let's look at a few dterms and definitions:
* Purification - Though Jews purify their food by Kosher means and Christians and Muslims purify their bodys by washing or baptism. Martine's "purification" was accomplished as Martine took her "shower" in my dream (Jan 28) ... rather than by "baptism", though it was done prior to her "entry" into a different realm. Thus this "getting ready to meet your maker" is available to, and done by, all, no matter what Religion they practice or preach.
*Born Again - Martine is certainly born again; "Resurrected" in a new body not of this world. In my dream, her body was all white after coming out of the shower. Again, this is a natural process, also available to all, no matter what, for it is of each soul, God and Spirit, beyond the knowledge of words and books!
* Everlasting Life - and "Life Persists", life goes on even as individuals come and go, and like any worldly or divine energy (which our souls are) life does not cease at "death", though it does change awareness and form. Isaac Newton even knew and described this in scientific terms ... "We cannot create or destroy energy, but we can and do change its form" ... i.e. from heat to motion to electricity, to light and electro-magnetic pulses, to send you this message, right here and right now on your computer!
And it all started with a thought!
... THE BEAT GOES ON
In death, when one looses the body, other people see and remember the gift of beauty and love that you are, that they felt on the inside ... and they miss The Essence of Who You Really Are, then think about all the Unexplored Love they wish they had explored together!
A Inspiration by Rev. John K (2013-08-24) - Inspired by Dr. Peebles
From the "Seth Reader"
About ... Dreams & Dreaming: (also "unconscious" or "alternate" conscious states)
"You assume yourselves to be unconscious when you sleep. The dice are indeed loaded on the side of waking mind. But pretend for a moment that you are looking at this situation from the other side."
"Pretend that you are in the dream state and concerned with the problem of waking consciousness and existence. From that viewpoint, the picture is entirely different, for you are indeed conscious while you sleep."
"The locations that you visit while dreaming are as real to you then as physical locations are to you now. Let us speak no more of a conscious or unconscious self. There is one self and it focuses its attention in various dimensions. In the waking state it focuses in physical reality. In the dream state it is focused within a different dimension."
"If you have little memory of dream locations when you are awake, you have little memory of 'physical' locations when you are in the dream state. When the physical body lies in bed, it is separated by a vast distance from the dream location in which the dreaming self may dwell. But this distance has nothing to do with space, for the dream location can exist simultaneously with the room in which the body sleeps.

A message from Martine
GOD is the light that permeates all things - that feels like the loving guidance of a father - and we know that you/I/we/they are always connected ... never alone!
Two recommended books by Robert Schwartz
Loss of a Loved One
“Learn to pierce the veil. None are ever truly lost. If you knew that by stretching your faculties you could reach the souls of those who loved you, would you feel the loss as much? They are no longer with you to go on picnics or do the dishes or attend your child’s graduation in form [body], but they can still see. Affection for souls does not die. How many people see their parents or grandparents dead for what they consider many, many years, and yet the love is still strong and vibrant? When one is lost, be assured all that needed to be gained has been gained from that personality. If one is lost, if a personality discorporates, take those treasures and move forward with them in your own life. Whether one dies at forty or eighty, the life has been lived as it was meant to be lived.”

AS GRIEF TURNS TO JOY
I received the following on 7 December 2015 - While driving to see hospice patients in Sedona area:
Martine here: "Yes, I know that you read much of the Kryon book 12 (DNA) as you sat with me in my hospital room when I seemed to be sleeping or non-responsive. But, then, you were identifying 'me' as my physical body, which is definitely a part of who I am, in total, but certainly not all there is to 'me' and Who I Really Am.
But, now, as we come together energetically and psychically, you can feel me in a different level of vibration, akin to 'the music of the spheres' which is the music of love as expressed through light, remembering that matter is simply the density of light.
And, so, in your tears of sadness. of missing my physical presence, you are learning to just tune in to a higher vibration (like tuning to another channel on your TV) and here I am! And, we're together again, in our loving and sharing light. So, now, you have tears of JOY!"
Martine R. Kohlenberger was born and raised in Paris, France, but always wanted to visit sights in the United States. Thus, she later met an American GI in London, marrying him and then lived in Germany before coming to Southern California.
As an accountant, Martine worked for construction, agricultural and real estate development companies, in California and later in Arizona. She was also a founding minister in the Mystical Spiritualist Church of Costa Mesa CA., later of Prescott Valley and more recently holding services in Prescott, AZ. In addition, she has been active with the Mountain High Mystics, and the Culture de France French club of Prescott Valley.
Martine passed into her Next Grandest Adventure at age 68, in Phoenix, to experience more life, love, light, joy, peace and freedom on January 30, 2013 at 7:54 AM.
Mrs. Kohlenberger is survived by her son, Patrick Dobbins in San Diego, CA, her husband John of Prescott Valley, his brothers and daughters' families who live in the greater LA basin, of Southern California and a cousin and niece in France.
Friends and associates of Martine are invited to her Memorial Service on Friday, February 15 at 3 PM, at Sunrise Funeral Home and Crematory, 8167 E Hwy 69, in Prescott Valley, AZ 86314.
Afterwards, those wishing to engage in the ancient religions custom of having a potluck as a celebration of life, after such a Memorial Service, will be invited to bring your favorite finger food to share, along with your warm heart and open mind to the home of John Kohlenberger, just a few miles away in Stoneridge, a community in the foothills of the Bradshaw mountains.
Now all are invited celebrate Martine's (so called) death and resurrection into everlasting life.
These memories are with our souls forever!
