Near Death Experience (NDE) stories are intriguing, if not amazing, accounts of journeys into the unknown. Many individuals who go through a NDE often make seemingly miraculous changes in their lives afterwards. Everyone can learn from NDEers, the incredible stories they tell and the lessons they bring back home from the Light.
NDEers tend to come back from their encounter with death feeling joyful, free from fear and inspired to live a great life. Research shows that they make many positive changes in their lives, and that that those changes last. For example, most NDEers become more spiritual and less materialistic, more loving and less judgmental, more accepting and understanding than they were before their NDE. Often, they find themselves in possession of new knowledge and skills, including enhanced intuitive and psychic abilities.
The story of bringing light-producing Near Death Experiences to light begins with Dr. Raymond Moody and Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, who were among the first medical professionals to do research on NDEs. Moody's books brought the modern day NDE to the attention of readers everywhere. In fact, he coined the term Near Death Experience.
They worked at a time when doctors avoided talking about death with their patients and seldom discussed the truth about life expectancy with their terminal cancer patients. Doctors swept the subject of death under the rug. No one wanted to talk about it.
Dr. Ross talked openly about death with her dying patients and would talk supportively about their NDEs, whereas most doctors had no idea what to think or say about NDEs. Those individuals who had a NDE were left to suffer in silence or risk embarrassment by talking about their experiences and feelings. Many Near Death Experience Survivors were thought of as crazy or wildly imaginative.
The world has come a long way since then. Hundreds of thousands of Near Death Experience Stories are showing us the way to embrace a life of Unconditional Love, and hinting at what the process of death may be like. Plus, NDEs are giving us a clear idea as to how we ought to be living our lives, in order to enjoy life to the fullest and to live in a healthy, happy way.
NDE survivors approximate the ideal human qualities envisioned by the great psychologist and human potential theorist, Carl Rogers, such as genuineness, empathy and unconditional positive regard for others. Some NDEers make dramatic and sweeping changes in their lives that are really quite extraordinary. They are highly motivated to improve themselves, learn new things and shower their passion for live onto others, sharing freely and unselfishly with everyone they meet.
Nowadays there is a huge body of fascinating research taking shape around the globe, verifying that NDEs occur regardless of ethnicity, race, religious affiliation or personality. The NDE phenomenon is one of the most intriguing aspects of human nature, blending psychology, spirituality and philosophical themes in a powerful and unique way. We are learning a great deal from those who have a NDE. They are showing us how to live life boldly, fearlessly and joyously.
One of the NDEers I interviewed recently, Michael, now a close friend of mine, said the main take-away from his NDE was a lesson in love -- love like he'd never known. He felt a love and total acceptance so pure and great that it transformed him. Although he could not adequately describe it, Michael said that just being in that beautiful, brilliant light for but a few minutes healed him and made him whole, ensuring that he would never be the same again.
Further, Michael said that until he died and found himself standing in the presence of the beings of light, their saffron auras glowing, he had never known unconditional love. He felt completely accepted and understood, as their flowing light engulfed him. The feeling that he was one with them was simply overpowering.
The beings told him, "You can't stay here. You have work to do, and you must go back."
Michael said he was sorely disappointed, because he wanted to stay, but he understood. "You don't argue with them," he said.
Later, when Michael began rebuilding his life, there were questions to ask and profound subjects to ponder. "You feel like the work you must do is important, but you always wonder what that work is. For a long time, I struggled, but ultimately, I knew that if I had work to do, it would show up."
One of the most intriguing aspects of Michael's NDE, in my mind, is how it made him feel about himself, how it grounded him and gave him a sense of spiritual identity. "I finally felt like I was finally home," he said, "and it is my real home -- my life -- the place where I belong. I know exactly where that is, and I can think about it when I get stressed, and then I'll feel better."
Michael says that his NDE gave him the strength to care for his younger siblings, while a child himself. But now, all these years later, it still guides him. "It comes down to daily actions, sharing positive energy, appreciation and love -- genuine love, and a kind of heart-to-heart energy, that allows you to reach out to people with a smile."
Before his NDE, Michael kept to himself, and rarely sought the company of others. The NDE helped him to become more open, and to feel safer in the company of others. He remembers becoming more nurturing. And it gave him a newfound strength to help raise his siblings. The NDE led to a greater awareness, and a vision for how everything fits together.
His NDE still guides him in how lives his life -- decades later -- encouraging him to express openness and prompting him to give his positive regard and love to others, including strangers. The days of hiding away in his own little world are gone. Today Michael doesn't feel as though he exists apart from others, but that he is vitally connected to everyone, all things and all creatures on earth.
To what Michael has said I can only add, there is no separation. Separation is an illusion. We are all connected to one another, but many may not realize it. It's all about awareness.
Michael feels that he's has been contacted again by the beings of light, for lack of a better term, during a powerful meditation. The first time, he saw an elegant gate, which was closed. "The beings told me to go in, so I opened the gate and went in. It was remarkable."
"Then, the next time, I went in through an open gate, and I joined them. Each had a saffron glow -- an aura of pure saffron -- and immediately I felt immense love and acceptance, and all my questions were instantaneously answered."

One of the most intriguing of the Near Death Experience stories, Tom Sawyer's case was amazing.
Tom Sawyer was a tough-talking, hard-living son-of-a-gun who hated opera and did things his own way, until a truck fell on him, crushed his chest and sent him straight to the other side . . .
Tom was careful with his equipment, but the jack gave way and the truck landed right in the middle of his chest. Flattened him! Pronounced clinically dead, Tom was gone for 15 minutes. Long enough to have brain damage, even if he lived.
But he came back strong . . .
And he blew their minds with his powers, even locating the whereabouts of a hidden passageway in their lamasery.
Like many NDE survivors, Tom devoted his life to helping others understand and utilize the amazing power of Unconditional Love.
