    In 2004, Lutheran Pastor Dirk Willner had a near-death-experience in the cardiac ward on Good Friday. Reluctant to share his story at first, after seeing how his vision of heaven blessed people who heard it, Dirk began sharing it with others. Since that time, he has received invitations from groups around Australia. He has also been a guest speaker, been interviewed on Radio, and had his testimony broadcast on Christian Cable TV.

    Dannii describes two near-death experiences, both of which were caused by liver failures. In her first NDE, Dannii enters a dark realm and ends up in a waiting room full of deformed people that were engaged in various deprived behaviors. In her second NDE, she describes an encounter with a great light that she believed to be Jesus. Among other things, Dannii states, repeatedly, that heaven, hell, and Jesus are real. She pleads with people to live good lives so they don't end up in hell. Danni declares that Jesus loves everyone, regardless of the religion they belong to or the color of their skin. She also believed she received a miraculous healing during her first NDE and describes the power of prayer.

    NDEr Nancy Rynes: Reintegrating After A Near-Death Experience

    Nancy Rynes - Awakening to Life: Reintegrating after a Near-Death Experience, 2016 IANDS Conference

    Nancy Rynes says: "After eye-opening, spiritually-transformative near-death experiences, many NDErs struggle during their return to human life. I was no different until I realized that my NDE itself gave me all of the tools I needed not only to reintegrate to human society, but to turn my life into one I have always wanted to live. In this presentation, I discuss the wisdom I was given during my NDE including: our power of choice, how gratitude and compassion can transform our lives and the world, the amazing gifts that we have here in the physical plane. I then give examples of how I used this wisdom to transform my own life, and ways that many of my family and friends have made changes for the better as well. I also present exercises that others can use to transform their human life, one step at a time, whether or not they have had an NDE."

    Quotes from Nancy's talk:

    "Everything is just as it should be. It is sad. But everything will be OK in the end."

    "You're my child. Welcome Home."

    "The point of all of this was for me to bring heaven into my own life and the lives of the people around me. And to anybody else who wanted to listen."

    "Connecting with others will be the key to your salvation."

    "IANDS saved my life."

    "This is really what helped me come out of my black hole: extending love to other people."

    "See love. Feel love. Be love."

    "Don't always be so flipping serious. Have fun. Play. Enjoy your life. That's what it is all about. You have a very finite amount of time to come here and enjoy who you are. So do it."

    Dr. Bruce Greyson, a faculty member at the UVA Division of Perceptual Studies, presents his research on near-death experiences in the second half of this video. Prior to Dr. Greyson's presentation, we hear author Jeff Olsen describe his profound near-death experience.

    The UVA DOPS faculty gathered to offer public lectures at the Boston Museum of Science on September 17th, 2016, as part of a special one day event, "Do We Survive Death? A Look at the Evidence". This event was sponsored by Tracy Coen.

    The Division of Perceptual Studies (DOPS) is a research unit within the Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia Health System. The research faculty of the Division are known internationally for their expertise and research integrity in the investigation of phenomena relevant to the nature of consciousness and its relationship to the physical world.

    For more information about NDEr Jeff Olsen, go here.

    Jeff Olsen Quotes:

    "Share your experience and if you do people will heal."

    "Everything in perfect order no matter what it looks like here."

    "I can't heal and move on until you do. So live your life, be happy, and choose joy."

    Jeff's Book:

    I Knew Their Hearts: The Amazing True Story of a Journey Beyond the Veil to Learn the Silent Language of the Heart
    By Jeff Olsen

    Dr. Bruce Greyson Quotes:

    "The interpretation of the experience may vary from one culture to another, but the basic experience is the same over the centuries and around the globe."

    "In the 1890s, there was a flurry of activity about [near-death experiences] in French philosophy journals in which the term 'near-death experience' was first coined. The term 'near-death experience' in English was popularized by Raymond Moody who wrote a book in 1975 called 'Life After Life.' Before that book, virtually no one in the western hemisphere had heard of a near-death experience."

    "NDE memories are reliable over time and therefore retrospective research is reliable."

    "The dominant [NDE] model in the West for the past 40 years has been Raymond Moody's. But at the University of Virginia we've been collecting these reports from the early 1960s, many years before Moody wrote his book, telling us what's supposed to happen in the NDE. We compared 24 of the best cases we have from before 1975 when Moody wrote his book with 24 cases from the last decade, matched in terms of age, race, gender, religion, religiosity, how they came close to death, and how close to death they came. What we found was again that there's actually no difference... So the NDE reports are not influenced by the widespread knowledge of Moody's model."

    "Although the interpretation of NDEs may be influenced by your culture -- what metaphors you use to describe it -- the basic experience IS NOT determined by your culture."

    Nancy Rynes Talks About Her Near-Death Experience

    Nancy Rynes talks about her near-death experience and communicating with spirit. To learn more about Nancy, go here (a resource page about Nancy) and here (Nancy's Profile Page on this network).

    Excerpt:

    Question:

    "What was the most unexpected thing you learned about yourself when you were on the other side?"

    Answer:

    "That I am worthy of my own love... Before my NDE I really didn't like myself very much. At some points in my life, I really kind of hated myself. I didn't have much self love. I was an atheist so I didn't really believe in my own divine center inside of me, that connection The Divine Presence. So I think that whole chunk where I learned what I truly was in connection with The Divine Presence, that I was worthy of my own love, was the biggest shocker to me. Really, I'm a part of this? I'm not separate from this? This isn't another entity out there. I'm connected to this spiritual source? That's beautiful. And that's part of me. That was amazing to me."

    Researcher Gregory Shushan: NDEs & The Origin Of Afterlife Beli...

    Near-Death Experience and the Origin of Afterlife Beliefs -- Gregory Shushan, 2016 IANDS Conference

    Whatever their source (biological, psychological, and/or metaphysical), NDEs are unquestionably part of human experience. While they share similar themes wherever they occur, no two descriptions are exactly alike. As with any experience, NDEs are filtered through our layers of culture, language, and individuality. The interpretation of the phenomenon as indicative of survival after bodily death, however, appears to be universal. Accounts from around the world and throughout history show that NDEs regularly impact beliefs about the afterlife, despite cross-cultural differences. This presentation addresses their role in the formation of afterlife beliefs; the relationship between NDEs and cultural expectations; and the varying modes of interpretation and assimilation of these experiences in different societies. The argument that NDEs are a driving force behind religious beliefs aligns well with the conference’s focus on the transformative aspects of NDEs, and how they are integrated into people’s lives.

    NDEr Dannion Brinkley - "Saved By The Light" Movie

    by David Sunfellow (November 3, 2016)
    66 0 0

    Born in 1950, Dannion Brinkley is the author of three international best selling books -- Saved by the LightAt Peace in the Light, and Secrets of the Light. He is also a internationally known speaker who has appeared on hundreds of television and radio shows. In 1994 his New York Times bestseller, Saved by the Light, was the highest rated made-for-television movie of all time by the Fox Network. Drawing on his three near-death experiences, Dannion speaks to diverse audiences worldwide on topics including Near-Death Experiences, Palliative and Hospice Care, and Complementary and Alternative Healing Practices. In 1997, Dannion co-founded The Twilight Brigade in Los Angeles with a small but dedicated team of experience hospice volunteers and trainers. Since then, more than 5,300 have taken the volunteer training. Dannion has also received dozens of awards for his achievements and volunteer service, including the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service, the VFW Women’s Auxiliary Cherished Heroes Award, the Courage and Valor Award from the National Foundation for Women Legislators and numerous VA Awards including the VA Special Secretary’s Award and the Heart of Hospice Award, the National Hospice and Palliative Care Association’s highest honor.

    Brinkley is also controversial. Brinkley told his story to near-death researcher Raymond Moody shortly after it occurred, but details of his account have been questioned by his doctor and various journalists. For example, although Moody said one of Brinkley’s afterlife visions of the future later came true, many other forecasts proved inaccurate. Brinkley’s claim that he served as a CIA sniper during the Vietnam War has also been challenged by writers who checked his military record (visit the NDE Stories website for details).

    000061 NDEr Kimberly Sharp Clark - Beholding Eternity

    Excerpt from:

    After the Light: What I Discovered on the Other Side of Life That Can Change Your World
    By Kimberly Clark Sharp

    The first thing I remember was the urgent sound of a woman's voice. "I'm not getting a pulse!" she said. "I'm not getting a pulse."

    In fact, I said, I felt fine. Really good. Come to think of it, I'd never felt better, or more alive. I was healthy and whole, calm and together for the very first time in my life.

    Though I still couldn't see, I could hear everything -- mostly the scramble of many voices talking all at once. It didn't bother me. I let it go. I let everything go.

    My next awareness was of an entirely new environment. I knew I was not alone, but I still couldn't see clearly, because I was enveloped in a dense, dark gray fog. I felt a sense of expectancy, the same anticipation one feels when waiting for a plane to take off or arrive. It seemed natural and right to be here, and for me to wait as long as it took. Earthly time had no meaning for me anymore. There was no concept of 'before' or 'after.' Everything -- past, present, future -- existed simultaneously.

    Suddenly, an enormous explosion erupted beneath me, an explosion of light rolling out to the farthest limits of my vision. I was in the center of the Light. It blew away everything, including the fog. It reached the ends of the universe, which I could see, and doubled back on itself in endless layers. I was watching eternity unfold.

    The Light was brighter than hundreds of suns, but it did not hurt my eyes. I had never seen anything as luminous or as golden as this Light, and I immediately understood it was entirely composed of love, all directed at me. This wonderful, vibrant love was very personal, as you might describe secular love, but also sacred.

    Though I had never seen God, I recognized this light as the Light of God. But even the word God seemed too small to describe the magnificence of that presence. I was with my Creator, in holy communication with that presence. The Light was directed at me and through me; it surrounded me and pierced me. It existed just for me.

    The Light gave me knowledge, though I heard no words. We did not communicate in English or in any other language. This was discourse clearer and easier than the clumsy medium of language. It was something like understanding math or music - nonverbal knowledge, but knowledge no less profound. I was learning the answers to the eternal questions of life - questions so old we laugh them off as clichés.

    Why are we here? "To learn."

    What's the purpose of our life? "To love."

    I felt as if I was re-remembering things I had once known but somehow forgotten, and it seemed incredible that I had not figured out these things before now.

    Then this ecstasy of knowledge and awareness was interrupted. Again, without words, I learned that I had to return to my life on Earth.

    I was appalled. Leave all this, leave God, go back to that old, oblivious existence? No way.

    The girl who always did as she was told dug in her heels. But to no avail. I was going back. I knew it. I was already on the way. I was on a trajectory headed straight for my body.

    That's when I saw my body for the first time, and when I realized I was no longer a part of it. Until this moment, I'd only seen myself straight on, as we usually do, in mirrors and photographs. Now I was jolted by the strange sight of me in profile from four feet away. I looked at my body, the body I knew so well, and was surprised by my detachment. I felt the same sort of gratitude toward my body that I had for my old winter coat when I put it away in the spring. It had served me well, but I no longer needed it. I had absolutely no attachment to it. Whatever constituted the self I knew as me was no longer there. My essence, my consciousness, my memories, my personality were outside, not in, that prison of flesh.

    000001 NDEr George Ritchie

    by David Sunfellow (September 22, 2016)
    26 0 0
    Dr. George G. Ritchie, M.D. (born September 25, 1923; died October 29, 2007) held positions as president of the Richmond Academy of General Practice; chairman of the Department of Psychiatry of Towers Hospital; and founder and president of the Universal Youth Corps, Inc. for almost 20 years. In 1967, he entered private psychiatry practice in Richmond and in 1983, moved to Anniston, Alabama, to serve as head of the Department of Psychiatry at the Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center. He returned to Richmond in 1986 to continue in private practice until retirement in 1992. At the age of twenty, George Ritchie died in an army hospital and was pronounced dead twice by the doctor on duty. Nine minutes later he returned to life. Dr. Ritchie wrote of his near-death experience (NDE) in Return from Tomorrow, co-written with Elizabeth Sherrill, in 1978. In Return from Tomorrow, he tells of his out-of-body experience, his meeting with Jesus Christ, and his travel with Christ through different dimensions of time and space. Return from Tomorrow has been translated into nine languages. Ritchie’s story was the first contact Dr. Raymond Moody, PhD had with NDEs, during his undergraduate studies in philosophy at the University of Virginia. This led Moody to investigate over 150 cases of NDEs in his book Life After Life and two other books that followed.
