As we embark with more courage today, into topics that surround life and death and unravel more of our spiritual nature, it is such a treat to have more resources, specifically in film format being produced. Infinity - The Ultimate Trip is a film that explores our infinite nature and tackles the topics of death, dying and the afterlife. It is for anyone that has ever asked what happens after we pass from this world and is ready to get an answer to that question.
Having greatly enjoyed previous productions from Sharron Rose of Sacred Mysteries Productions, I was very enthusiastic when I learned about this new addition to their film collection.
If you wonder where we go at the time of our death, what happens there, and how it is all tied to this physical experience, this movie is one that addresses these topics so well. To add to this, it presents the viewer with an incredible message of hope and optimism that is so real. It is no longer about “wishing” what may happen, but about gathering facts from modern science and first-hand experience, not to mention from the awakening that comes from our personal memory of where we have been, and where we are going.
This film is definitely a trip and one that is so worth taking to expand your personal awareness of your spiritual state after passing from this physical realm and making peace with one of the most essential parts of life – death.

Overview and Content of Infinity – The Ultimate Trip
Infinity – The Ultimate Trip is a documentary based on beautiful imagery and interview accounts with famous teachers and authors, some of whom are mentioned above.
Together, these individuals share personal accounts and expertise about our incredible infinite nature. From funny stories to touching memoirs, this film delivers such a great experience for any open-minded viewer.
Here is a summary of some of the main discussions from some of the teachers featured:
Dannion Brinkley is a New York Times best selling author and a very outspoken person on the topic of death. Having died 3 times, he has direct experience with dying and experiencing the other side. In the film, Dannion shares many of his theories, and personal accounts challenging people in what they believe about life and death.
Renate Dollinger, a famous artist experienced her whole family killed by the Nazis and shares an incredible story about how a “special stranger” that appeared in her life after that, completely transformed her entire life. Her story is both laugh-out-loud funny and heartwarming as she recounts what she learned from this special stranger. Her story offers incredible empowerment, learning, and hope for each of us. She asks the stranger that she has come to know: “Is there a God?” To which the answer is “Yes. You are sitting in the middle of it.”
Neale Donald Walsch, author and speaker shares his experience of visiting other dimensions of the spiritual realm where he got to experience a more profound version of himself and life. Neale brings into this discussion the connection life and death have to the relationships we experience daily. Neale asks some serious questions that have plagued society for eons: Why can’t people just get along? and Why is it so hard? and What does it take just to simply get along? The answers he gets are startling and simply divine from the voiceless voice he encounters.
Death is a process of re-identification. You will come to know that you are not your body. You will come to know that you are not your mind. You will come to know that you are not separate from anything else.
Neale Donald Walsch
Alberto Villoldo, author and Shaman, died when he was 6 for the first time. He recounts his experience of what he went through during a very painful time and how at that young age he understood the incredible gift we give ourselves by coming into a physical body. His second experience with death was a symbolic one when he was initiated into the Shamanic ways. This second death he explains, allowed him to see his true self at all times and not simply the physical body that most of us are governed by in who we understand ourselves to be. Alberto also explains how when we break free of time, we also begin to break free of the fear of death.
When lifelessness begins to creep into you. That is the worst of all deaths.
Brian Weiss, past life regression expert and author, explains that many of the problems we have today that surround death and its fear, come from the fact that we have forgotten our spiritual nature. We simply forgot who we are, and we just need to remember. He also explains how the idea of reincarnation is in the root of every single world religion but has been pushed aside or hidden in most of the major world religions today. His part is shorter than perhaps some of the other teachers in the film but no less meaningful. For many people today, especially those involved in one of the main religions in the world, like Christianity, reincarnation is very much an inconceivable or foreign topic. And yet, when researched in-depth, history and religious texts tell us otherwise.
Gregg Braden, explains the intelligent field of energy that connects everything, and how our science now is telling us that indeed this field exists. Something that the Native traditions have always known for centuries beforehand, is just beginning to be discovered and accepted today. Gregg also explains how science today can measure how our soul is energetic in nature, and the loss of energy immediately at the time of death in our body, associated with soul release.
John Holland, popular medium, presents an amazing explanation of what to expect as to the question of our loved ones meeting us after we “die” and how this works next to the process of reincarnation. He examines questions like “Will your mom or another meaningful person still be there to meet you if he or she has perhaps re-incarnated into another form?” He explains in his discussion that for all those who say good-bye to us here when we die, others welcome us on the other side. Just the same way when we are born, people welcome us here, but those on the other side have to part with us. There is a constant welcome and good-bye between the two states.
People believe that the spirit world is part of our world. But we are actually part of their world. That is the real world.
Robert Thurman, professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies, explores the ideas of making heaven right here right now, just as we can and do create hell. These two states do not exist, aside from within our mind. This is very different from the idea that many people have of these two places existing as some “physical-like” locations. He also explores the ideas that there can be a difference between rebirth and reincarnation. The latter includes much more conscious awareness than the other. We can be reborn on an impulse but choose to consciously reincarnate.
Many of the individuals featured have had first-hand experience with angels and spirit guides. Some have experienced parts of life after death, and are here with us today to talk about it and share their experience. No matter their story, no matter the differences, they have one thing in common – we continue to live on beyond this physical realm.
Many of the speakers also share the uniting principle that one of the very first things that happen after we transform is that there is a special panoramic life review. This is far from a judgment by any third party, and more of a learning experience and karma shedding. This is the first time for some of us to start experiencing the divine being that we are and seeing the greater purpose of it all. It is as the speakers mention, one of the greatest gifts we can ever receive.
The goal of the film is both to remove some of the stigma and fear associated with death, as well as explore and awaken people to expanded ideas about their soul, the death experience, spiritual realms, and the afterlife. In doing so, it strives to answer the basic fundamental questions all of us have about life, death, and the afterlife.
Many of us today still have a great fear when it comes to what we call “death”. Some of the authors explain that having a fear can be useful, but only if you do something about it. If you simply do nothing and stay in a state of fear, then its purpose is useless. We came here for experience and sensation. We came to experience all the beauty that this physical realm can offer. They also explain that each of us was chosen to come here, and we each agreed to come here out of our own free will.
Knowing what I know now, I could never be afraid of death. When you are no longer afraid of time, you are no longer afraid of living.
Neale Donald Walsch
In one word, this movie was incredible. It has definitely by far become one of my favorites in this category of spiritual films. It is so beautiful. The messages in it are so beautiful – and most importantly so valuable. It makes us think. It makes us laugh. It makes us ponder and reflect. But above all these things it explains so beautifully our eternal and infinite nature. It not only offers hope but goes beyond that to remind us of our continuous journeys between the physical and spiritual realms.
There are many theories whether religious or spiritual about what death really is, and what happens in the afterlife. What I love about this material is that it is not some random theory. It is not some woo-woo fairytale wanna-be. If one really listens and opens up their mind, it is perhaps the most logical explanation of who we are and how life continues after this physical realm.
Naturally, you should never believe something just because someone else told you so, especially when it comes to spiritual matters. These things are not meant to be believed but are meant to be felt. If your mind and heart are open, you will immediately know what resonates with you, what makes sense and where you fit into this whole equation.
In this physical lifetime, I feel so many people are so busy trying not to die that they forget the real reason why they are here in the first place. We are not here to preserve our life at all costs, but to have an opportunity to grow and evolve our souls in relation to self and others. I am not saying that we should be reckless with our lives, but that if we could put aside our fear of death for a moment, we could actually have the opportunity to better see and understand the purpose of life.
Something very important and special that each of us can also take away from this film is that when in the presence of someone who is dying, it is important to give your loved ones permission to die. This is one of the most beautiful things you can do for another for their journey. So often we get so caught up in our own pain, drama, lack of understanding, grief and more, that we literally are holding onto the energy of the other being, preventing them from moving on. So letting go in love and peace is a big aspect of not only dying with dignity but also adding conscious awareness into the state of death.
I also really loved how the film explored how our sole purpose is to be a spiritual being helping other people. Nothing else matters. So many of us are still caught up in chasing the material, the status, and all else that is fleeting. But all each of us takes with us are our experiences with others. How did we treat each other? How did we treat ourselves? How did we treat nature? This film reminds us to focus on others and your relationships with them, instead of on stuff.
Today, thanks to movies, material, and teachers of this nature, I have come to be in an amazing state as to how I see and understand both the life and death process. I know we are so much greater than we think we are. I know that we are so much more alive than we realize. And it is not a limited engagement. We do not disappear. We do not get judged. We are loved and we continue to evolve our souls to continue to feel Source/God more and more.
Once we each realize that we never die and that we can always be with our loved ones, it completely changes our view of death. Almost immediately fears are eliminated and a new paradigm begins to shape. That is one of the main reasons why I love material like this – it empowers us to recognize and remember this.
If you do not believe that there is life after death then you will be surprised.
The only unfortunate thing about movies like this is that they are not available to be seen by the masses in the theaters. Most of these films do not even make it to your local video rental store. There are some public screenings and to check if there is one in your area, see Sacred Mysteries.
This is a shame, as a resource like this has the potential to transform lives, and all for the positive. It is based on love, awareness, education, and empowerment. It is rooted in such positive energy and has little to gain. It does not portray violence, nor does it advertise any stuff or lifestyles. It is not even about making money. It is about reaching out to people, helping them understand the greater concepts of life better and making a difference in their lives. Whether due to the changing times, personal growth, interest or curiosity, Infinity is a film that is full of care, wisdom, enlightenment and upliftment that is sure to leave the viewer further along their personal journey than ever before.
Therefore if you would like to take advantage of this material, you can find Infinity - The Ultimate Trip on Amazon. It is likely to be a film that you watch several times, as each time you will find something new to reflect on and expand your consciousness about.
