What are Near Death Experiences (NDEs)?
There are reports of near death experiences going back thousands of years. Our current reports come from people from all walks of life and diverse cultures from around the world. They occur as a result of experiencing death according to standard medical diagnosis and instrumentation. By current medical conventions, people should not have continued consciousness, notwithstanding the extraordinary experiences they have while in the "death" state and prior to resuscitation. However, there are now thousands upon thousands of such reports, many of them having similar "traveling through the tunnel," coming upon the peaceful bright light, and meeting with deceased friends and relatives experience.
As a personal aside, my father who transitioned at the age of 92 in 2011, experienced an NDE in 1935 at the age of 16. Of course he kept it quiet since it was not a well-known phenomenon back then. He only first acknowledged it when I started telling him about NDE's around 2002. I can still remember him looking at me wide-eyed, shaking his finger at me, and saying, "I've never told this to anyone."
Enjoy your exploration of NDEs, one of the strongest pieces of evidence for survival after "death."
Closer to the Light
by Melvin Morse
The skeptics have had their say. Now, listen to the experts.
In hundreds of interviews with children who had once been declared clinically dead, Dr. Morse found that children too young to have absorbed our adult views and ideas of death, share first-hand accounts of out-of-body travel, telepathic communication and encounters with dead friends and relatives. Finally illuminating what it is like to die, here is proof that there is that elusive "something" that survives "bodily death."
Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon--Survival of Bodily Death
by Raymond Moody
In Life After Life, Raymond Moody investigates more than one hundred case studies of people who experienced "clinical death" and were subsequently revived. First published in 1975, this classic exploration of life after death started a revolution in popular attitudes about the afterlife and established Dr. Moody as the world's leading authority in the field of near-death experiences.
Life after Life forever changed the way we understand both death – and life – selling millions of copies to a world hungry for a greater understanding of this mysterious phenomenon. The extraordinary stories presented provide evidence that there is life after physical death, as Moody recounts the testimonies of those who have been to the "other side" and back – all bearing striking similarities of an overwelming positive nature. The moving and inspiring accounts give us a glimpse of the peace and unconditional love that await us all.
