Near Death Experience

Have you you ever heard of  Near Death Experiences?  Or have you ever known someone who has had a Near Death Experience? Do you even known what it is exactly???

A Near Death Experience is simply an experience that someone has when they are close to death, or even pronounced clinically dead and then resuscitated back to life. There have been millions of accounts from people from all parts of the world. And the most interesting thing about it, is that they are all very similar no matter what part of the world they are from or even religion they claim to follow. So what are these experiences like? What happens? And how do people react or feel about these occurrences?

Most people say that when they have a Near Death Experience they feel themselves in spirit form leaving their lifeless body. They usually rise above as if they are flying or floating, able to see the whole event taking place from another perspective. Some people say that they only had an out of body experiences such as just described. Others say that their spirit leaves and goes on to another realm of some sort where some have been reunited with deceased loved ones, while some describe amazing colors and beauty, peace, and serenity, and most of all and overwhelming feeling of love. Some of these people say they were given the choice whether or not to come back to their physical body or stay in the afterlife. Others said they did not have a choice and were sent back.

Doctors and nurses hear about these Near Death Experiences all the time. Some believe, while others are sceptical. For some time it was thought that the person was dreaming or even hallucinating. This possible theory was actually proven wrong. It has been scientifically proven that it is impossible to dream or visualize while unconscious. It has also been proven that when someone is clinically dead there is no blood pumping to the heart or brain which causes the electricity to function thought and stimulation in the brain. So how are people having these experiences? Could we really have a spirit? (I think so!) 

The people who have had these experiences and testimonials are from people who have been in tragic accidents, major surgery, or some form of life threatening occurrence. In the book "Evidence of the Afterlife - The Science of Near Death Experiences" by Jefferey Long MD and Paul Perry there were many examples from people who were willing to share their stories. One lady died on the operating table while in surgery. She said she felt herself leave her body in spirit form. She floated above her body and could see all the nurses and doctors frantically trying to save her. She said she was not scared, she knew everything was going to be fine. She did recover, and amazed all the doctors and nurses with the accuracy of her detailed story. They couldn't understand how she could easy describe the whole operation and conversation of the medical staff, down to the screaming when her heart rate flat lined on the monitor. There was no way she could consciously be aware of what was going on during her surgery.

Another man was in a coma for weeks after a deadly accident. He said that although his body was not conscious and could not move or respond he said he knew everything that was going on. He said the time went faster in his "realm." He said that he could hear the doctors, nurses, and even family members' conversations which he later described when he came back to his earthly body. He also already knew and described what kind of gifts his family placed in his bedside drawer.

Another woman was declared DOA - Dead on Arrival to the hospital. The medical staff was able to save her and bring her back to life using electronic paddles. When she awoke in her hospital room she told the staff of her out of body experience. She told them that she felt herself leave her physical body when arriving to the hospital. She said it was as if she was floating away from her body. She said she floated up and over the hospital as if headed up into the sky. She then went on to describe the outside of the hospital, down to the most minute details. She told them that there was a single, blue, man's tennis shoe on the third floor balcony window, and she could even describe the small lettering on the windows and shingles on the hospital building!

Lastly, a woman nearly died in her own house due to a gas leak. She was unaware of the situation as she sat on her couch and watched television. She ended up passing out on her couch due to the deadly fumes. She said she left her body and went to the after world where there she was met by her deceased grandmother. Her grandmother told her it was not her time yet and that she needed to wake up immediately and leave her home, for there was gas leaking that would killing her. And she was sent back, and when she awoke she told her family and friends about her experience.

Most of the people who have had these amazing experiences say that it has changed their lives forever. Many people say that they choose to become better people, they are more loving, and most of all they appreciate life more. Some say that from going to the afterlife they have experienced a new way of life, they feel more intelligent, as if they have a new understanding on life. And there are those who after their Near Death Experience have even developed psychic abilities. Some people find that they can communicate with spirits or other people through telepathy, which is communicating through the mind only. Some people have become physical healers. There have been many unexplainable incidences from millions all over the world, even including the blind and young children. So what are we to think? All these people can't be lying can they?

How can these events be explained? Is there really an afterlife? Who really knows? You be the judge. We will all find out one day. I like to think that there is. I believe in ghosts and spirits, so they have to live somewhere right? And, with all of my experience with The Law of Attraction and the way frequencies work, I believe there is some sort of higher power. There has to be some form of intelligence behind this universe. Behind nature, science, life and existence. There is just so much that we have yet to discover. Just be open to new experiences and always keep your mind open for new knowledge and understanding.

Channeling

In my entries I am always speaking of the power of the mind and the effects that it has on our lives. There are so many different options we have to play with. There are many topics and ideas we can focus on. Usually, we focus on something that interests us. One topic that has always fascinated me and got my attention is metaphysical subjects. This has to do with anything regarding the afterlife, spirits, angels, ghosts, psychics, palm reading, astrology, numerology, and so forth. There are so many unexplainable subjects that we could get into. One of which, is called Channeling. Wikipedia defines this as "the esoteric process of receiving messages or inspiration from invisible beings or spirits." Put simply, Channeling is a well known practice of people who can communicate with spirits.

There are different sorts of Channeling that many may not be aware of. The first and most popular way is communicating with spirits through some sort of medium such as the Ouija board. Others can use crystals or crystal balls to gaze into and see images of communication. There have been famous people of the past who have used codes to communicate when asking questions. They have used candle flames or knocking, such as one flicker or knock would mean yes, while two would mean no. And then there are people who can speak and hear everything only through their mind. A person could ask questions and receive answers all in their mind without speaking a single word. And lastly, the most extreme case is where a person actually uses their own body as the medium for communication. The willing and practicing individual goes into a meditative state, a trance in which they actually allow the spirit speak through them, in their body.

One of the most famous examples of channeling was from 1913 by a woman name Pearl Curran. She began by using the Ouija board and came in contact with a spirit who claimed to be Patience Worth who said she was the ghost of a farm woman from Dorsetshire, England. She moved to American in the late 1600's and was killed in an Indian attack. Pearl Curran became very interested in this particular spirit and continued communicating with her on a regular basis. It got to the point where she no longer had to use the Ouija board, she said that she was receiving the messages through her mind. She soon started going to a trance state of mind and recited the communications to others who would record and document the information. The most intriguing part about this was that Pearl Curran only had an eight-grade education and became an abundant author written allegedly from Patience Worth her spiritual connection. She wrote for seven years and wrote 29 volumes including 2,500 poems, 6 full-length historical novels, plays, short stories and epics. Pearl Curran's books have been analyzed by scholars, who found the details historically accurate. The plots were well-constructed, and many were written in an authentic Old English vocabulary that Pearl Curran had no way of knowing or researching in her time. After the seven years Pearl Curran said that her spirit medium Patience Worth moved on and did not communicate with her any longer, and the writings came to an end.

There have been many others who have been known for channeling spirits or other psychic abilities. There are plenty of unexplainable situations that take place regularly. Some people choose to get involved while others avoid the topic completely. Many people are not comfortable with the idea of spirits and afterlife. Some people choose not to believe. Whatever your stance on the state of affairs, Channeling has been around for a long time, and continues to grow with popularity. Once again, I go back to the power of the mind. I believe there are so many things that we have yet to discover. They say we only use ten percent of our brain. Ten percent! Imagine what we would be capable of if we took the time and learned how to use the whole thing! We are very intelligent and powerful beings. We are able to achieve whatever it is we set our minds to. Some people choose to study metaphysical subjects and get involved with it. Whatever you focus your mind on, will be your choosing, your calling. What is it that you want to do with your mind? What will your experience be like? What will you accomplish in this lifetime? The choice is yours. Create your own destiny.
