[The Stars Still Shine] We're back


February 25, 2021


You have been waiting patiently for our news from the afterlife.

• We will be publishing new illustrations (psychic drawings) by James Murray and channeled messages in March 2021.


• We have contributed to a new book "Heaven-Sent Love Letters: Between Tom in Heaven and Nancy on Earth" by Nancy S. Calumet.
Book information follows comments from Bob Murray:

"Hello one and all,

This is Bob speaking from the great beyond AKA Heaven. I was asked by James to say a few words about a new book called "Heaven-Sent Love Letters: Between Tom in Heaven and Nancy on Earth" by Nancy S. Calumet. Since I have read it, I have bestowed my thoughts. James made a contribution to the book. Its about an afterlife described by Tom Calumet (1927—1990) who is exchanging letters with this wife Nancy on Earth. In the last few years, James has been channeling Tom's words and letters. Tom's day-to-day accounts involve some of the same places where Michael and I have frequented in the afterlife. We have become friends with the couple and are mentioned in their exchanges. I also have a few messages in the book. Keep in mind that Tom recounts his afterlife experiences differently from how I or Michael tell ours. Sit back and enjoy the read!

Bob Murray"

Magazine Developments

January 19, 2016


For the first six months of  2016, we will be presenting new items that we are considering for publication in The Stars Still Shine Magazine. Your input is and will be most welcome and appreciated.  A letter from our Upstairs Publisher/Writer about the magazine follows.

Letter from Bob Murray "Father Murray"

January 14, 2016

Hello one and all! I still exist and am writing this introduction through my son, James. I understand you are a devoted reader of our magazine 'The Stars Still Shine E-magazine'.  Thank you for all your years of readership and devoting your time to our writers and storytellers. They thank you and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Now, I'm writing to tell you that I wish to continue the publication. From where I sit now, I have an office in a new big house on the Other side. I arrived a few months ago and have found my way around though I am not unfamiliar with my surroundings.

When 'living', I wrote many stories, some book length that have not been published. These stories are fiction but do contain influences and inspirations from my 'life' time on Earth and from other 'people' on the Other side. I brought through stories from writers on the Other side when I was alive and kicking. Well, maybe not kicking but you get the idea…  These writers helped me immensely; I learned about writing in the process. I give them credit.  When bringing through their stories, I like to think I added some flavor. They tell me I did.

I'm presently writing stories but James needs more time to sit down and 'put pen to paper'. He says he will have some of his messages (my news) and his drawings to add to each issue. I can't say how many issues will encompass my writing (my Earth writing) but let's say we will keep you entertained from a few years. But that will not be the end as James will have time to compile more from me and maybe others.

So I just want to add before I end this introduction that I'm very much interested in your input on what we are proposing for the magazine. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you!

Much love from your Upstairs Publisher and Writer,

PS - Carolyn, our Upstairs editor says she is all for the transition of the magazine as long as it sits well with our readers.

Kind Regards,

1. Bob's New Abode

Bob sits in a recliner arm-chair in his Other side Library-Office waiting for James to write down his words.

James: "Can you tell me some details about the drawing I did?"

Bob: "James tells me he made the drawing to show our family and friends where I am living now.  I do like the drawing I might add.  He spent many hours on the picture while I gave him some insights into what and where to place things.  Now, if you look carefully you will notice a castle in the top left corner. That is a special castle created by a neighbor of mine, Diana, Princess Diana. Also on her large estate is a large manor that houses her staff and children she cares for who have passed on recently. She says her home is their home. The castle is a large playhouse for the children.

Now back to my home here.  I didn't create a large house just for myself but made enough space for family and friends to visit.  The house is larger inside than appears.  You can do that here :)  In fact, you can squeeze a mansion into a tiny cottage if you imagine it. There is no limit except with your mind.  I had the exterior of the house decorated for the holidays by James and he also helped granddaughter Emily decorate a tree inside.  James also gave me the snow.  I did not want the snow on the walkway or roof. "

James: "Did you have someone help you design and create the house?"

Bob: "Yes and yes. I was given a book of house designs and I chose one but wanted some modifications. This person, the designer made the changes on the plan which was a small 3D model. In fact, I shrunk down to take a tour of the model that was like going through a fancy doll house. Now, if you create the actual house and make changes without knowing exactly what you want, you run the risk of a type of explosion that won't hurt you but will have the unexpected happen. So with a model you only have a smaller explosion if you aren't careful but it just means you have to start again until you do it correctly.  Knowing exactly what you want in the design is important.  He showed me more 3D house models so I could chose what interiors I liked. He then made the modifications to my model.  Michael tells of a few construction mishaps  in my book 'The Stars Still Shine'.

Now, I don't spend all my time here but it is a place to rest my head, eat and welcome my family and friends. I invite you inside to sit by the fireplace and have a cup of hot tea or hot beverage of your choice.

Pleasant dreams!

Lots of love from
Gpaw, Father, Bob"

Note: Michael's messages about construction and initial information about Diana's house are published in Robert Murray's book "The Stars Still Shine: An Afterlife Journey"
