"The Past Lives of the Near Death Experience (NDE)"

The advent of modern life saving technologies has made the Near Death Experience (NDE) a "widespread" phenomena. As NDEs are massively documented by evidence deemed valid by science, they have received much study (much of it in an effort to disprove the validity of such inner experiences).

Nevertheless, there is substantial agreement as to common elements of the NDE which are typically found in most cases. These common experiences as a result of near death include:

- Suddenly feeling totally at peace
    (as you feel that you are being detached from your body)

- Seeing a dark tunnel and hearing noises
    (as you feel your consciousness moving out of your body)

- Finding yourself outside your body
    (awareness that you are now detached from your body)

- Seeing "bright lights" and "spiritual beings"
    (your guides manifesting their presence to you)

- Being guided to "cities of light" or "celestial mansions"
    (your guides taking you to the "Hall of Karmic Records")

- An intense period of "life review"
    (of your progress to date and the options for the future)

- Sensing the "time limit" for this journey is reached
    (you must go back to your body or leave it behind)

- Consciously choosing to return to your body
    (the body will die if the Soul decides to leave it behind)

- Realizing later "something happened" while unconscious
    (trying to recall/recount the particulars of the NDE)

- Processing the NDE into your body
    (rejecting or accepting it/corroborating events with others)

- Integrating the NDE into your life
    (the degree to which you act on the Karmic Counseling)

- Integrating the NDE into your view of death
    (the degree to which you accept you are eternal)

Ironically one of the arguments against NDEs is that they have to be just "misfirings of the brain" chemically, electrically, or otherwise artificially induced by modern medical technology. The argument goes if Near Death Experiences were a "real phenomena" then they would have been reported well before the modern era.

So attention scientists: NDEs have been reported throughout human history. Just look at the inspirational quote section at the end of this newsletter to see NDEs reported by the great philosopher Plato in Greece around 347 BCE, in England by church historian Bede around 731 CE, and in Canada by Captain David Perry in 1762 CE.

NDEs are not new but have been less frequently reported as medical technologies did not support heroic resuscitations and as speaking of them openly was likely to lead to unwanted problems with authorities.

And yet as with all things, truth proves to be the daughter of time and reveals that there is "nothing new under the sun".

If you are interested in learning more about NDEs, you can read more about it in "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Near Death Experiences", this book is excellent and worth putting up with the rude title.

"NDE: Putting Your Life into Proper Perspective"

Near Death Experiences (NDEs) are much more than an "academic" topic to me. At the age of 7, a botched surgery propelled me into my own NDE. Like most NDE children, I brought the experience back to my conscious awareness at an "age appropriate" level. I focused on the fun aspects of it... seeing angels, sparkling cities of astonishing beauty, and feeling completely pain free for the first time in 7 years.

Like most experiencers, I chose to come back to my life now out of the greatest love and the sincerest desire to help and support others, especially those closest to me. And like most experiencers, I am able to reconnect with feelings of being infinite just by making a conscious effort to go back to the moments of "time" spent in the inner worlds.

One of the greatest gifts "the experience" gives those who underdo it is being able to put life into proper perspective. To use the common phrase, "don't sweat the small stuff". The world will go on turning and the sun will go on shining ...if you are 5 minutes late to work, if you mail that check tomorrow instead of today, if you leave dirty dishes in the sink... as long as you try to do the best you can... you need to realize that in the trying will sometimes be the failing.

That is the difference between excellence and perfection. Perfection is an impossible goal: one that is doomed to failure... we are all human born to make mistakes. Excellence is an achievable goal: one worthy enough to devote a lifetime in achieving as it encourages growth.

Perfection holds us back: it keeps us in our comfort zone of what we believe we can do with the utmost perfection. Excellence empowers us to take the risks that are needed to help us achieve our dreams. Look at those who are the most prosperous today... all of them took big risks, made big mistakes, and turned them into big fortunes.

So imagine that you only have six months to live... What would you want to do before you go? Those who have had NDEs must face that question and in doing so must put their lives into proper perspective.

"If You Have Been Near Death Yourself"

McCoy: "So Spock, being dead - what was it like?"
Spock: "Impossible to say, Doctor, we lack a common frame of         reference with which to discuss the matter."
McCoy: (very annoyed and offended) "You mean I have to DIE to         discuss your insights on death?"
Spock: "Precisely." ("Star Trek IV: Voyage Home")

Whether it is experiences with near death, past lives, or "other" phenomena that are perceived beyond the "normal" senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste, or touch, those who have had them ALWAYS have difficulty in getting others who have not had them to understand. Quite literally, it is impossible to convey what it is like to "be on the other side" to those who have not experienced it for themselves.

It is especially difficult for those who have had NDEs. For unlike past life or other extra sensory perception, NDEs are impossible to ignore. The life and death struggle, the difficult choice to come back, the profound impression that glimpsing immortality and higher awareness makes - all of these cannot help but to alter an individual forever.

The WORST thing that those who are close to an NDE experiencer can do is to NOT listen to their loved ones and/or to get them to deny or minimize what happened to them during this experience.

The BEST thing that can be done is to listen - REALLY LISTEN without judgment - to what the experiencer has to say and help them to work through the emotions that always come in it's wake.

Failing to "process" such experiences has consequences. Those who "just forget about it" 99% of the time will develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and will become depressed and perhaps suicidal. Those who must process it "by themselves" often withdraw or end the relationships with those who could not support them.

Those willing to learn from the NDE will find they must now be very true to themselves... to their dreams and life goals... and cherish their precious "second chance" at life. This accelerates their relationships, causing those around them to grow into greater levels of love and service OR to drift away, realizing they have "somehow grown apart".

Those who "stick with" their NDE experiencers have the unique opportunity to grow closer and faster to their true destiny of becoming love. That is the greatest gift that one person can give another.

Here is what can help you to grow more loving right now...

"Karmic Dictionary: Near Death Experiences (NDEs)"

"Sometimes it takes a thing as great as death to teach us about life" (Svarctic Sage). From a spiritual standpoint, the real purpose of the Near Death Experience (NDE) is to give the individual who undergoes it a "necessary mid-life course correction".

This is a "last resort" to get a person's life "back on the track" of their life contract. The NDE propels the person in full consciousness into the inner worlds of God to review the "progress of their life to date" relative to what they agreed to do before they came here.

How this works is best described by Dannion Brinkley (author of "Saved by the Light"):
"As my body lay dead on that stretcher (he recovered from being struck by lightning through his phone), I was reliving every moment of my life, including my emotions, attitudes, and motivations. The depth of emotion I experienced during this life review was astonishing. Not only could I feel the way both I and the other person had felt when an incident took place, I could also feel the feelings of the person they reacted to: a chain reaction, showing how deeply we affect one another."

After such a review, the person will receive an intensive "karmic counseling" session with their guides during the span of the NDE experience. Upon their return to their body, some will remember the experience with perfect clarity while others will realize "something" happened without fully understanding it.

Those who are "more advanced" in Soul experience or are "more ready" to heed the call of Soul will respond more to the karmic counseling given during the NDE and will need/want to retain more of the experience consciously so they can "mend their ways".

Whether NDE experiencers can believe or accept it, their NDE was a "wake-up call" from their Soul. Pay attention to it and life now and in the karma-created future will be better, spiritually. Ignore it and the problems that caused it to begin with will just become compounded.

As with everything else, the choice is left up to each individual.

"Scientists Validate Near-Death Experiences"

The past is still present... even in the present day news.

From ABC's Good Morning America: "When a car plowed into the vehicle in which she was riding, Leslie's chest was crushed, eight bones were broken and her heart stopped beating for three minutes. Before she was revived, she says she glimpsed the afterlife. "My next experience was really lying on the ground outside of the car."

Leslie continued by saying, "I was actually floating above my body, and I looked down, and I saw all these men working on this poor girl who was down below, about eight feet below me". In this case, the "me" who was Leslie's Soul looking down at the herself in the broken body "which was struggling" to cling to life.

"An estimated 7 million people have reported hauntingly similar 'near-death' experiences. And a new study in the British medical journal Lancet gives credence to such accounts, concluding they are valid."

Of course, the American journalist (who in private life was an "assisting minister") goes on to dismiss this study - despite the evidence - to conclude that "belief in the afterlife remains primarily a matter of personal faith" and in his case of scientific prejudice.

The traditional knock on religion was that it sought to close people's minds to bodies of evidence carefully constructed by scientific means.

Now the knock on science is - that however much evidence exists proving phenomena like NDE and no matter how scientifically sound it is or how much independent verification exists - it has become as "close minded and prejudiced" as it use to accuse "religious dogma" of being. And with far less justification because now scientists must stray from their own rules to keep their eyes and minds shut.

One day the body of evidence on the validity of NDE will just be too big to ignore.... as will the evidence of the next logical step beyond Near Death Experiences... reincarnation.

For the story from Good Morning America go to ABC News.

"Vanilla Sky: The Dream After Dying"

The movie's official description is: "David Aames appears to lead a charmed life. Handsome, wealthy and charismatic, the young New York City publishing executive's freewheeling existence is enchanting, yet he is missing something. When David meets a girl of his dreams, he loses her by making a small mistake. Thrust unexpectedly onto a roller-coaster ride of romance, comedy, suspicion, love, sex and dreams, David finds himself on a mind-bending search for his soul and then discovers the precious, ephemeral nature of true love."

What David finds is that his life since the moment of that mistake has been nothing more than a dream. In fact, this movie is an excellent depiction of the "dream after dying".

When people die suddenly or traumatically, leaving a life that they were particularly attached to... because they were young or had close loving relationships or had "so much to live for", etc... they must be weaned from these attachments to that life.

This is the purpose of the "dream after dying". In this dream, the dead continue to lead their lives "as normal" often forgetting whatever event caused their death. As the dream goes on, the people and events they encounter become progressively more unreal. If the individual is not ready to accept that level of unreality, they will "wake up" and begin another phase of the dream that is more acceptable to them.

When they go through enough cycles of the dream, they are brought to accept that it is unreal. They are then led to the realization that they are "dead" to their old life and must now let it go. While in they are in the "dream after dying" state, they exist in a quarantined area of the inner worlds. Often, when grieving people are told their loved ones are in a rest cycle and cannot be contacted by mediums, it is because they are not yet ready to let go of the "dream after dying".

No one can "open the eyes" of those dreamers... they must do that for themselves. Like David Aames in "Vanilla Sky", they will decide finally to trade their dreams for a new reality, a new life in a new body, continuing the cycle of reincarnation.

Inspirational Quote for the Month:

"Er.. was slain in battle, and... as he was lying on the funeral pyre, he returned to life and told (of) what he had seen in the other world. He said that when his soul left the body he went on a journey with a great company... There were judges, who commanded the just, after they had given judgment on them and had bound their sentences in front of them, to ascend by the heavenly way on the right hand; and in like manner the unjust were bidden by them to descend by the lower way on the left hand; these also bore the symbols of their deeds, but fastened on their backs. He drew near, and they told him that he was to be the messenger who would carry the report of the other world to men... in what manner or by what means he returned to the body he could not say; only, in the morning, awaking suddenly, he found himself lying on the pyre."
("Republic: Chapter 44 - Myth of Er" by Plato (347 BCE))

"One from the province of Northumbria returns from the dead: 'A handsome man in a shining robe was my guide... He said... 'You must now return to your body and live among men once more; but, if you will weigh your actions with greater care and study to keep your words and ways virtuous and simple, then when you die you too will win a home among these happy spirits that you see'... I was most reluctant to return to my body... but I did not dare to question my guide. Meanwhile, I know not how, I suddenly found myself alive among men once more.' ...inspired by an insatiable longing for the blessings of heaven, and by his words and by his life, he helped many people to salvation."
(History of the English Church & People" by Bede (731 CE))

"I went through the excruciating pains of the separating of soul and body, as completely as ever I shall again... and that I was immediately conveyed to the gate of Heaven, and was going to pass in; but was told by One, that I could not enter then, but in process of time, if I would behave as he directed, on the set time I should have admittance. This transition (as I believe) from life to death, and from death to life, which took place 60 years ago, is as fresh in my mind now as it was then; and not many days have passed from that time to this, which have not brought the interesting scenes I then witnessed, clearly to view in my mind... (I have) since told it (his NDE) to a great many people; and some believe it, and others do not..."
(Captain David Perry (1762 CE))

Good Deed for the Month:

"The Hospice Foundation of America is a non-profit organization promoting hospice care and working to educate professionals and the families they serve in issues relating to caregiving, terminal illness, loss and bereavement. Hospice is a special concept of care designed to provide comfort and support to patients and their families when a life-limiting illness no longer responds to cure-oriented treatments. Hospice care neither prolongs life nor hastens death."

"The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of a patient's last days by offering comfort and dignity." Volunteers are a key part of hospice. Many report that they find such hospice service "personally gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally meaningful to assist those in need at a critical point in their lives. Many were introduced to hospice through the death of a family member and understand firsthand the value of hospice care."

It is important to remember "helping the terminally ill through hospice is not about dying but about living." Those who know there is life before and after death can provide the greatest comfort.
