Death Bed Request





It's probably the most eccentric thing you'll hear for quite some time, but I always thought I'd like to have a good trustworthy team of investigators with me in the final minutes of my life, along with my family. They could park themselves on the periphery of the room with their equipment and my last contribution to the field would be letting them document my passing with perhaps some pre-assigned plans for what to attempt and where to concentrate their study. It would be something akin to donating my kidneys, just another last assist from the other side. I don't think this has been done at all, or if it has very rarely, because who ever thinks to have a team with equipment when you're passing? It's that rare moment when one goes from flesh and blood into the spiritual realm that you would have the greatest chance of proving the other side. I suppose when I get old and decrepid, I'll begin a good relationship with a team I like and trust who is in my town and have them on the ready in the future to get a call to rush to the hospital or my home on a moment's notice for the ultimate ghost hunt. Me!

  1. This is an interesting idea. I only had one experience with someone dying, my Dad. I was with him when he died and will never forget it. Perhaps your soul will reside at Aspen Grove along with your other family that have already passed. That's if they are there.

  2. BTW, I feel that Grant attracts more of the paranormal activity. He seems to have the most happen to him. Just an observation.

  3. I rather like this thought-I had always thought of telling my mom-the person I am closest to in life-altho I am very close to dad and brother also-that if i passed on first -if there was any sort of way to contact whether it be through electronics or whatver-i would find it-i have not brought this up to her yet as talk of one of us kids (altho im 43 ) going first upsets her-very very interesting musings as always-I would like to do the same-I do not think there is any more of an imporatant philosophical discussion than what happens to us after we die-best to you as always!

  4. It would be an interesting endeavor...What be more interesting is if you were able to be revived and report back your experience and compare that with the evidence recorded by the investigators.

  5. My father died in our kitchen when I was 16 and the paramedics brought him back with the paddles 4 minutes later. He was being carted away and said to me, "Oh, it was amazing. Everyone was there. My family. There were flowers that don't exist and colors that don't exist here." I remember a few days later when he died, I felt a comfort to know he'd experience that place again. What I wonder is if he continued to experience it or if it was something intermittent and protective as we pass, random firings (i.e. the movie "Signs"). Mike and Julie; I agree about Grant attracting a lot. I noticed Grant tends to make things move around him (drum falling on him, something grabbing his hood) and Jason tends to draw their attention (comment made about his hat, flip flop moved). I think the combination is probably what really does it. One episode, Jason was gone and nothing happened for Grant. Another episode, Jason wandered off with Brian and nothing happened. Intriguing...

  7. This is an interesting thought. When my great-aunt Marilyn was dying in her home I visited one last time to say goodbye. When I saw her she was asleep in her hospital-style bed, and there were lights glimmering all over her. At first I thought that sunlight was reflecting off of a puddle somehwere, but then I realized that there was no such thing nearby. She passed away soon after. When I came back to view her body the lights were gone. My aunt, who was holding my great-aunt's hand when she died, mentioned the lights too. She said that shortly before Marilyn passed she was talking about her father, who had died 12 years before. I wonder if the lights were some sort of spirit or some natural phenomona such as reflections from a source I could not find. I still don't know how the lights got on my great-aunt; they should have been reflecting on the wall or ceiling, as her bed was slightly below the north-facing window.

  8. The lights--that's a very common feature. I think that's why I hope to have a team around. Who brings a camera to a loved one's death? It's not something that's usually photographed. When my mother was dying, we sat by her side for five days and about three days into it, I felt her leave her body. I can't explain it except I had the rushing chill and goosebumps and then my eyes went towards the corner of the room as if I felt her essence there watching us. When my oldest brother asked if we should consider unplugging her, I told him it was fine with me, because she wasn't there anymore.

  9. Actually, I am terminally ill and have been wanting to do this for sometime now. When I get closer to time, I am hoping to have a team of "ghost hunters" there to find out if and how I can communicate and let my family and others know for sure whats up. I was a nursing assistant for the terminally ill for 18 years. When its my turn, I want a chance to answer some questions.

    1. Susan, I am very sorry to hear about your condition. I hope that you have a sense of being in transition and I hope that your transition helps you to be able to communicate. I also hope you have many on the other side to greet you on your journey when the time comes. Bless you, dear.
