April 13, 2019

NDEr, Psychic Medium, Artist, Author, Leader of Portland IANDS

Artist. Intuitive. Author. Animal Communicator. With her intuitive art technique, Jane often draws exact renderings, and translates meaningful messages from people & animals who are in the Afterlife.

Jane has done intuitive sessions with personal, animal and business clients for 20 years. In her sessions, and “Message From Beyond” gallery readings, Jane accesses factual information about people & places at distant locations (and times), called “remote viewing”.

As a professional artist, Jane has painted murals and
personal canvases and her artwork is in collections all over the world, including in homes of Martin Sheen & Jane Goodall.

As an author, Jane’s richly illustrated book (co-illustrator Tara de Forest): *Love Never Dies-A Psychic Artist Illustrates True Stories Of The
Afterlife*, has been well received and recognized with three awards.

Jane studied at Rhode Island School of Design and with Lakota
Shaman, with Buddhist teachers, master psychic Louise Hauck and has journeyed to sacred sites in Peru, Bali, and Egypt.

Her current Workshops include: “I Knew You Were Going To Say That-The Science Of Practical Intuition,” “Nurturing Intuition-A Workshop For Kids & Their Grown-Ups,” “Messages From Beyond-Afterlife Communication” and “Introduction To Animal Communication-Breaking The Inter-Species Code.”

Jane’s pro bono & community volunteer work includes; facilitating communication for children with special needs, her “save the bees” project in Equador and locally, translating for big cats (tiger, leopard, cougar & lion) at a local sanctuary and Directing Portland IANDS (International Assoc. Near-Death Studies). Jane has donated time teaching her children’s art,
mindfulness and creativity curriculum art in schools for 10 years.

Jane is a devoted mother, wife, daughter, gardener, and beekeeper who
loves hiking, music and living in the Pacific Northwest.

“Jane deForest’s work is absolutely lovely. Artists have so much to contribute to our effort of making this a better world, for art speaks to the inner self”
Jane Goodall, Ph.D.
Author of *In the Shadow of Man* and founder of the Jane Goodall Institute

“Jane deForest is a true visionary. Her art is a gift of spirit that connects the
viewer to the heart of the Sacred. Jane’s images are powerful transmissions that can change consciousness and help bring clarity, kindness and
compassion into the world”.
Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. Author of *A Woman’s Journey to God*

About the Author:

Born in New York City and raised in the Midwest, Jane DeForest grew up surrounded by giant elms, vast cornfields and a richly cultural homelife. Not only could she discern the thoughts of others, see non-physical beings and communicate with them, she knew when grown-ups were fibbing...which caused a variety of problems. She also knew at an early age that she was an artist. She attended amazing schools like the Interlochen Arts Academy, while the Rhode Island School of Design taught her to refine her craft.

Her remarkable family -- brilliant, talented and devoted -- dragged her to museums around the world and encouraged out-of-the-box thinking. Severe dyslexia inhibited her scholarly interests, but allowed for alternative intuitive systems to develop naturally. Years of solitary painting of murals and commissioned canvases somehow taught her to absorb non-linear information through osmosis.

Her clients eventually wanted her to "read" them psychically. After formal training, her work shifted to illustrating through images the invisible world behind her eyes. She learned an antiquated technique of drawing, and at the same time, developed a reputation for achieving very high accuracy in intuitive consultations or psychic readings. She utilizes a variety of skills during psychic, intuitive coaching & consultations:

-- Medium or mediumship which is a formal way of describing spirit communication or talking
to dead people, if you will.

-- Psychic animal (horse, dog, cat & bee) communication or inter-species ESP or trans-species
mental telepathy.

-- Grid surfing or remote viewing, which is intuitively viewing another location and
rendering accurate drawings of specific things.

-- Psychic time travel, which is basically grid surfing or remote viewing a past event or a
future event.

-- Energy clearing or debugging, many people have psychic garbage stuck to them inhibiting
healing, growth for general happiness.

-- General assessment of an individual's mental, spiritual and physical energy field.

-- General relationship assessment of a couple's mental and physical energy field dynamic.
Here she works on cultivation a strong spiritual connection to fortify the groundwork for a
deeper relationship.

In addition to writing, coaching and teaching workshops, she also loves to garden, cook and hike with her family in the beautiful northern rainforest of the Pacific Northwest. She is a community volunteer and donates time teaching art in schools; she's recently taken up helping to save the bee population in her area. In her pro-bono work, she uses ESP to help kids with severe disabilities who can't communicate in traditional fashion.
