What are near-death experiences?

  • Near-death experiences (NDEs) are profound psychological events that occur when someone comes close to death or undergoes a crisis that makes them believe they might die. These experiences often involve vivid and intense perceptions, emotions, and sensations, which may include out-of-body experiences, encounters with spiritual beings, or a sense of oneness with the universe.

Are there any scientific explanations for NDEs?

  • There are various theories and hypotheses about the causes of near-death experiences, including physiological, psychological, and spiritual explanations. Some researchers attribute NDEs to the brain's reaction to stress, lack of oxygen, or the release of certain chemicals like endorphins or DMT.

Do all near-death experiences have similar elements?

  • While each NDE is unique, there are several recurring themes and elements found in people’s stories of near-death experience. Common elements include out-of-body experiences, encounters with spiritual beings, life reviews, and a sense of peace or unconditional love.

What can we learn from stories of near-death experience?

  • Stories of near-death experience can offer valuable insights into the nature of consciousness, the probability of an afterlife, and the interconnectedness of all living beings. These stories often provide comfort, hope, and inspiration, encouraging us to embrace love, forgiveness, and compassion in our daily lives.

3 Common Themes Found In Stories Of Near-Death Experience

Heavenly Encounters, Telepathy and Clairvoyance, The Panoramic Life Review

1) The Light at the End of the Tunnel: Heavenly Encounters

  • Angels in the Abyss

Many stories of near-death experience describe encounters with ethereal beings, often perceived as angels or divine messengers. These encounters provide comfort, guidance, and wisdom, helping the individual navigate the unknown realm they find themselves in.

  • Guided by a Higher Power

Another common theme in stories of near-death experience is the presence of a higher power or divine force. Some describe a loving presence, while others sense a guiding force, steering them back toward life, or urging them to complete unfinished business.

  • Embracing the Warmth of the Light

The light at the end of the tunnel is an iconic symbol of near-death experiences. Some recount feeling drawn to the light, while others describe a sense of peace and warmth that envelops them as they approach it. This light represents hope, love, and forgiveness for many who experience it.

2) The Inexplicable Connection: Telepathy and Clairvoyance

  • Receiving Messages from Beyond

Some near-death experience stories involve receiving messages from deceased loved ones or other spiritual entities. These messages often convey love, reassurance, or guidance, leaving the individual with a renewed sense of purpose and connection.

  • The Power of Intuition

Following a near-death experience, some individuals report heightened intuition, psychic abilities, or even clairvoyance. They may develop a keener sense of empathy or a newfound ability to connect with the spiritual world.

  • Synchronicity in Near-Death Experiences

Synchronicity, or the occurrence of seemingly unrelated events that form a meaningful pattern, is another common theme in stories of near-death experiences. These uncanny coincidences often reaffirm the belief in a higher power orchestrating the intricate web of life.

3) Life Flashes Before Your Eyes: The Panoramic Life Review

  • Confronting Past Choices

The panoramic life review is a profound element of many near-death experiences, where individuals relive their lives in a matter of moments. This review allows them to confront past choices, see the ripple effects of their actions, and gain a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of life.

  • Lessons Learned in the Aftermath

Following a life review, many individuals come away with valuable lessons and insights. They may develop a greater appreciation for the importance of love, compassion, and forgiveness in their lives and carry these lessons with them upon returning to the world of the living.

  • Forgiving Ourselves and Others

The life review often provides an opportunity for forgiveness and healing. Individuals may recognize the need to let go of grudges, forgive themselves for past mistakes, and embrace the power of love and understanding.

Common Occurrences In Near-Death Experiences

Floating Above the Scene

  • One of the most captivating stories of near-death experience involves the sensation of floating above one's body, observing the scene below. Individuals recount witnessing their own resuscitation attempts, overhearing conversations, and even recalling specific details that they couldn't have known otherwise.

Brush with the Grim Reaper

  • Some near-death experience stories describe encounters with the personification of death itself. While these encounters can be terrifying, they often serve as a catalyst for personal transformation, as individuals realize the fragility of life and the importance of living with purpose.

The Taste of Eternity

  • Experiencing a glimpse of eternity is another theme found in stories of near-death experience. Individuals may find themselves in an otherworldly landscape, enveloped in unconditional love, or experiencing a profound sense of oneness with the universe. These experiences often leave a lasting impact, instilling a deep sense of peace and spiritual connection.

The Two BIG Stories Of Near-Death Experience

Anita Moorjani's and Dr. Eben Alexander's published stories of near-death experience recount personal NDEs that profoundly impacted their lives and understanding of the nature of consciousness, reality, and the afterlife. The connections between their two narratives can be found in their shared themes, insights, and transformative experiences.

Both authors experienced life-changing near-death experiences (NDEs) that led them to encounter an otherworldly realm characterized by unconditional love, wisdom, and interconnectedness. These transformative experiences resulted in remarkable healing and new insights about the nature of consciousness, emphasizing its existence beyond physical death. Their shared spiritual lessons from their NDEs focus on love, compassion, and living authentically to achieve a fulfilling life. Following their NDEs, both authors dedicated themselves to sharing their experiences and insights, with Moorjani becoming an inspirational speaker and author, and neurosurgeon Dr. Alexander also becoming an inspirational speaker advocating for research on consciousness and the afterlife.

Neurosurgeon With Near Death Experience:
A Doctor’s Odyssey Into The Mysteries Of The Afterlife

Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife is a book by Dr. Eben Alexander, a renowned neurosurgeon with near death experience, who shares his extraordinary NDE story. In 2008, Dr. Alexander fell into a coma after contracting a rare and life-threatening form of bacterial meningitis, which led to his brain shutting down. Doctors considered his survival unlikely and doubted he would regain consciousness.

During his seven-day coma, Dr. Alexander claims to have experienced a profound journey into the afterlife. He recounts visiting a realm beyond our physical world, characterized by unconditional love, vibrant colors, and transcendent beings. He interacted with a mysterious guide who communicated with him telepathically, teaching him valuable life lessons.

Despite the damage to his brain, Dr. Alexander miraculously recovered and returned to consciousness with a transformed perspective on life, death, and the nature of consciousness. In Proof of Heaven, he shares his story, blending his scientific background with his personal experience to explore the potential existence of an afterlife and challenge our understanding of the relationship between brain function and consciousness.

The Anita Moorjani Near-Death Experience:
A Remarkable Odyssey From Darkness To Healing Through Love & Self-Discovery

Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing is a memoir by Anita Moorjani, recounting her extraordinary story of healing and transformation. Anita was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2002 and fought the disease for four years. In February 2006, her body was ravaged by cancer, and she slipped into a coma, with doctors giving her just hours to live.

During her coma, Anita experienced a near-death experience (NDE) in which she encountered a realm of unconditional love and profound wisdom. In this state, she was able to understand the root causes of her illness and realized that her fear and self-rejection had contributed to the development of her cancer. She learned that true healing comes from embracing our authentic selves and recognizing the power of our own inner beings.

Miraculously, within days of her NDE, Anita's cancer began to rapidly recede, and within weeks, she was declared cancer-free. She went on to make a full recovery, and her story has become a testament to the power of the mind-body connection and the possibility of healing through self-love and personal transformation.

In her book, Anita shares her insights about the nature of reality, the importance of self-love, and the role of fear in our lives. Her story serves as an inspiration to readers to embrace their true selves and live fearlessly, unapologetically, and authentically, in order to create a life filled with happiness, health, and purpose.

My Near Death Experience Was A Real Life Changer For Me - by Psychic Tina

My Near Death Experience

“My near death experience was incredible. My life had just been played out before my eyes and I found my life’s mission in helping others walk through life without fear.”

I have always had feelings, an inner knowing that I couldn't explain where it came from but knew it to be true. At the age 30 I had my near death experience when suffering a bout of pneumonia.

Suddenly all my pain melted away, I felt weightless and began to gently spin up and away from my body lying on the floor. This didn't upset me, in fact: I was very happy to know I wasn't going back to my body. I looked around and saw a beautiful white light, down a long tunnel.

I immediately felt drawn towards it, a familiar feeling like I was going home swept over me. I began to move eagerly and faster toward this beautiful light. I reached the light and was surrounded by 13 souls that looked upon me with love and welcome. I was so glad they were there and I remember expressing how much I had missed them.

As I began to look around I was directed to big moving screen. On the screen I began to see the life I had just lived play out before my eyes. I felt everything, including what others had felt because of my actions and behavior. It was so sad for me to realize how many people I had hurt by withholding love from them. I continued to watch as scene after scene played out.

I was literally on my knees crying in pain and feeling so horrible about not loving enough while I was alive. I begged them to not hate me, and told them I did not deserve to be there with them. It was then I was shown more scenes from my life. These scenes showed me the love that flowed freely from me to others. I witnessed and felt each person's feelings of love because of something I said and did for them. I also saw them turn around and spread that love to others and by the time those scenes were over I felt I had redeemed my life. I felt I had a right to be in this most wonderful place.

It was then I was told that I must return here to earth, that I still had much work to do. I didn't want to go. I felt a sadness I thought would damage my very soul and with a heavy heart I returned to my body. As soon as I entered my body, I felt the coldness of it, the pain, and the heavy feeling of being in the body all made me terribly sad and I cried very hard for several days after my near death experience.

It was during my near death experience that the 13 individual souls came to me and started telling me things that would help me achieve the goals that I must achieve, in order to be able to go home. It has taken me years to finally go into business for myself and give people the help they need, without charging too much. I am proud of the mission I have been called upon to do here on earth and I live each day with relish. My psychic readings help my clients to walk through life without fear! That is mission for the rest of this life. To get people to realize that fear is the deceiver. We are spiritual beings that live forever; earth is not our true home.
