Welcome to The Last Frontier

Dr. Julia Assante
A big welcome from Julia Assante, medium, scholar and author of The Last Frontier 

This site is currently under revision. Please be patient with little problems and its ever-changing appearance. Thanks!   


“Each person is born with a spiritual and biological faith that is personal, intimate, and optimistic. Real faith springs from innate awareness of our connectedness with all living beings, with nature and All That Is. It requires only that we retrieve that child part in each of us that knows the universe is good. Not good and evil, not even good and bad. Just good. It is knowing that every consciousness is uniquely meaningful and charged with purpose. That survival beyond the body is the only possible outcome. That the afterworld is not about judgment and condemnation. That All That Is is so all-encompassing, so unfathomably compassionate that even forgiveness is dwarfed into insignificance. This faith is what people who have returned from near-death states bring back with them. For the dead it is the ever-present state of grace in which they dwell.”

“Death is not what separates us from the departed. Fear is.”


The Last Frontier is available in paperback and e-editions, on AmazonBarnes and Noble and at bookstores nationwide.

“Social historian Assante, who is also a medium, has penned what may be the most important book on the enigma of death since the groundbreaking work of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.”








We all know that the human condition is irreversibly mortal. Have you ever wondered why so little is known about what happens after we die? Our society is happy to spend billions exploring the furthest reaches of outer space—although chances are no one you know will ever go there. But we won’t explore the afterlife, the real Last Frontier and the destination of every human being on the planet. Just as trillions are spent fighting aging and death, ten trillion has already been spent making atomic bombs to inflict death on someone else. This seems right to us, because we view death as life’s greatest failure. And we view life, no matter how devalued, as superior to death.

The willful ignorance is all about fear. Most people feel that even thinking about death is like inviting Dracula through the window. That fear has us in a stranglehold. It makes us wide open to exploitation, especially by the industries of health, news and entertainment. Day after day they bombard us with graphic messages about fatality and they’re making fortunes doing it. The irony is that all this fear is making us sick, physically, mentally and spiritually.

The documented fact is, real knowledge of what happens after we die triggers dazzling transformations in body, mind and spirit. Life is lived in better health with playful intensity. Dying is peaceful and usually pain free. With fear out of the way, we see it for what it really is—not life’s greatest failure but a creative act brimming with wonders. This recognition alone lifts an intolerable burden on the terminally ill, freeing the sick to live more fully to the last. Death is not what separates us from the departed, fear is. The terrible finality, the deep grief and remorse we now experience would vanish once we truly realize that our departed loved ones are still alive and communication with them can continue. One of the world’s best kept secrets anyway is that everyone talks to the dead, inwardly, secretly, and often in prayer, no matter what a person’s beliefs are. The release of fear allows the emergence of our inborn abilities for real two-way dialogue with the dead. One-to-one contact is a startlingly common phenomenon. It sets sea changes in motion. It ends grief. It heals. Relationships with the departed grow at unprecedented speed in view of their new-found honesty and understanding. The good news is, it’s never too late to tell the departed what is in your heart.

Above all, contact with the departed brings us face to face with immortality. Once you experience the reality of immortality everything falls into place. You can throw out all those self-help books you’ve been meaning to read that promise a healthier, happier, richer and more spiritual you. If you want to get to know your eternal self, learn about the afterlife, where eternity is manifest in action, or talk with the dead who are their eternal selves, pure and simple. Real knowledge of the afterlife unleashes the authentic you, radically resets life values and deepens your sense of life purpose. Besides, it’s the adventure of a lifetime! That’s a lot! The Last Frontier is the first critical exploration of that vast, uncharted, simply out-of-this-world terrain we enter at death. It draws from consciousness research, physics, parapsychology and quantum biology, from studies in Near Death Experiences and Nearing Death Awareness, from the records of therapists, medical personnel and bereavement counselors, and from accounts of communication with the dead. Its main aim is the release from the fear of death. The author also calls for serious further study of the true nature of the afterlife and the normalization of afterdeath communication.

I want to hear your story. If you’ve had any contact with the dead, in a Near Death Experience, in personal afterlife communication not mediated by a professional, if you’ve seen a “ghost,” sensed the presence of the departed, or had visions of the afterlife, please tell me your story. You can start right now by clicking here. I am especially interested to hear from mothers who have lost a child and from soldiers and veterans. You soldiers may not realize that the stress of the battlefield boosts your abilities to see, feel, hear and experience things we call paranormal. These abilities, which all of us possess, go into hard drive to help you deal with immediate emotional or physical threats. In the meantime, for more information click on Death, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the Soldier. If you just want to ask me a question or make a comment, you can reach me by clicking here. I will answer you personally. Your privacy and anonymity will be preserved. If your story is appropriate to this web site, I may ask you for permission to publish it here. If you do not grant permission, no part of your story will appear on this site or in any other publication. Looking forward to hearing from you. And thanks!
