~ Near Death Experiences & the Afterlife ~
TWO BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCES
To introduce this topic, here are two personal stories of what was experienced at the time of a severe health crisis, on the edge of death. For sure, death is no void; more like, it is a reflection of the very best of our being. There are tens of thousands of such cases documented. The people might have died but they chose not to.
DR PENNY SARTORI: NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES
Dr Penny Sartori worked as a nurse in a British hospital for 21 years, 17 of those being in Intensive Care. She has conducted unique and extensive research into the near-death experiences (NDEs) of her patients. In 2005 she was awarded a PhD for her research into NDEs and has received worldwide attention and media coverage. Those who have experienced a NDE have much insight to give us on the way in which we live and can empower us to have more fulfilled and meaningful lives
PETER FENWICK: WHAT REALLY HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE
Peter Fenwick (born 25 May 1935) is a neuropsychiatrist and neurophysiologist who is known for his pioneering studies of end-of-life phenomena. In this interview he talks about near-death-experiences (NDE), death-bed-visitors and how we can achieve a good death.
NDE research is at the cutting edge of consciousness research and offers a convincing model for the understanding of what happens when we die. Peter Fenwick describes the different transitional phases of the dying process and highlights the importance of letting go at the end of ones life.
He offers fascinating insights into common phenomena at the end of life, such as premonitions, seeing a light, death-bed-visions and coincidences. In his opinion everybody should know about death and the dying process, because it is a normal part of living. See his book, The Art of Dying.
WOMAN CURED OF CANCER AFTER NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE
Anita Moorjani fell into a coma due to late-stage cancer. Her husband was told by doctors that she had less than 36 hours to live (her organs were shutting down). All the while, Anita was having a near-death experience, was given the choice to return to her body or not, chose to finish out her life, then had the most remarkable healing ever documented. She is able to share with us what it was like to be out of her body and in that other realm, including her ability to see the past and future, experience timelessness, know her life's purpose, feel the emotions of others, and even know what caused her life-threatening illness in the first place. This understanding subsequently led to a total recovery of her health
Her new book Dying To Be Me recounts the experience. Bob Olson talks with Anita about her near-death experience - Part 1..
INTERVIEW WITH DR. ELIZABETH KUBLER ROSS
Dr Elizabeth talks about how she took a scientific approach to her investigation of NDEs and found no conflict at all between her scientific training and her own experience. She also tells why as a psychiatrist familiar with delusions and hallucinations she was convinced that NDEs are real
