This is a continuation of my studies right now on what commonalities paranormal events have and perhaps try to discern where and how these things manifest. Today, we'll discuss NDEs.
NDEs, or near-death experiences, are most often associated with lack of pulse and breathing, pronouncement of death, and then reviving of the patient back to having vital signs again. During that period of time when the patient is “down,” some of these people have visions that are extremely real to them, in fact, quite life-changing. They believe it is an introduction to heaven (and in some cases hell). Attributes such as a dark tunnel, a bright light, other beings including deceased relatives, review of one’s life, and a bright warm light that is very tempting to go towards; all are common descriptions.
I talked about psychic skills in my last two posts on psychometry. Some of the key factors I believe included; genetics, emotional intuitiveness, blank mind, and synesthesia.
Let's talk about NDEs today and look for common attributes and see if we can begin along the way to make correlations between different forms of the paranormal and see if these tie together to form a paranormal highway and ultimately to see if we can find out what that highway is constructed of (what kind of asphalt holds the whole thing together).
There are a few issues I have with scientists who dismiss the experience of NDEs by the patient as malfunctioning and random firing of synapses in the brain during lack of oxygen and hypercapnea (high carbon dioxide levels). The fact is, the patient really should be in a coma-like state at this time. Should there be random firings or seizure-like electrical activity in the temporal lobes, certainly that would not account for very clear, lucid, story-like, and detailed imagery reported by patients. These are very dream-like encounters and we know from our sleep time just what dreams are like. It makes me wonder if dreams are nothing more than our souls experiencing some out of body time that is much needed each day.
As we looked for commonalities and factors in psychometry abilities, let’s look at NDEs. These are reported by people across the board; no particular religious preference, belief system, education level, or any genetic predisposition. So, the “who” is totally random. The how is during the lack of electrical activity in the body. There is both imagery, the sense of being out of the body, and a complete relief from being within the vessel of the body, as well as an overall feeling of peace and absolute love. So, this is both sensory, spiritual, physical, and mental.
In looking for correlations, there are a few interesting things I’ve noted. The use of psychometry involves a complete emptying of the mind. NDEs involve a completely blank mind. Is it at all possible that by emptying the “noise” in the brain, we can bring in the spiritual or paranormal realm to travel upon? NDEs feel and out of body experience, the reading of objects involves reaching outside one’s body to gather information from “outside.” Is this the moment of the soul traveling? Sifting through space and time? It would appear that genetics and emotional intuitiveness are not required here as they were in psychometry.
Now, we’re left to focus on blank minds and OBEs (out of body experiences) as common factors. The mystery continues. For now, I’d very much like you to read this. It is the most extraordinary NDE account ever and has never been disclaimed by those who have studied it. In fact, it has changed the course of many doctor’s practices in trauma situations, as this is a very powerful story.
