Awakening After Death?
Lately I have been heavily into NDEs and the Truth behind them. I have never had one, but I must say, those who do always sound sincere when talking about the experience, and in almost all cases, they become “better” people in the fact that they live for morality and love.
I’m going to share something by an amazing author and also one who has had a NDE. His name is Rene Jorgensen.
“Is the Near Death Experience evidence of life after death? Well, just the fact that people with no breathing, no heartbeat an no pulse come back from death and tell the same story is pretty extraordinary. But also the scientific evidence in support of near death experiences is in fact pretty strong.
We can predict scientifically that about 20 percent of people with cardiac arrest who are successfully resuscitated will have a near death experience. And the hardest piece of evidence is that near death experiences have been reported in clinically dead patients who had no brain activity whatsoever.
That near death experiences are reported during a state where the brain is completely inactive strongly suggests that these experiences are neither hallucinations nor any other kind of explanation that involves brain activity, because during flat EEG (no brain activity) clear conscious experience should not be possible.
Thereby no skeptical theory can explain away the near death experience and this scientific evidence from these experiences beyond death is not only evidence of life after death but also of the realm of God.
Between 80 - 90 percent of people who have a near death experience are convinced there is life after death and the most compelling evidence is the depth and sincerity of their testimonies. Most people who have NDErs do not see themselves as being near to death but actually in death, and because of the power of the experience, there is seldom any doubt of its reality.
The other side or realm is convincing beyond any doubt due to the sheer power of experiencing it and most NDErs call the experience ‘hyper-real;’ more real than anything in this dimension. One study found that 96 percent of NDErs said that the experience was not a dream but real unlike anything they had ever experienced in this world.
Another fact that strongly suggests that the NDE is not a dream or illusion is that the experience has a very powerful positive life changing effect. Studies continuously find that most people who have NDEs report that their life has been affected in a profound way. Since both dreams and hallucinations do not have this same effect on people, the life-changing effect of the NDE is strong evidence that the NDE is very real to the experiencer and not something that we can simply disregard.”
Quite interesting in my opinion, and I am looking forward to learning a lot more about these experiences.
