The Near Death Experience by David Furlong

Since Raymond Moody’s ground-breaking book “Life after Life” first published in 1975, the Near Death Experience or NDE has provided intriguing glimpses into the first stages of the Soul’s journey after the death of the physical body.

The first step in this journey is the seperation from the physical and being aware of the body from a different vantage point, such as looking down from the ceiling. The second stage involves travelling through a tunnel, which is sometimes described as a tunnel of 'light' or where there is a light at the end. In the final act the Soul enters the spirit world and is then greeted by loved ones that have already passed over or, on some occasion, by a great being of 'light'. The overwhelming feelings at this stage are peace and immense love.

The following section is from the sleeve notes of a remarkable video Visions of Hope, which is now available through the Spirit Release Forum.

The Fear of Death
One of the great fears which chains our consciousness is that of death. This fear has far reaching consequences, for it not only distorts our understanding of the needs of the dying but also undermines our ability to experience life to the full, thereby giving rise to many negative attitudes. To quote Dag Hammarskjöld, former Secretary General of the United Nations:

“No choice is uninfluenced by the way in which the personality regards its destiny, and the body its death. In the last analysis it is our conception of death which decides our answers to all the questions that life puts to us.”

This film attempts to address this problem through the accounts of six individuals who, because of powerful common experience, have overcome their own fear of death.

The 3 stages of the Near Death Experience or NDE

The Near Death Experience
The modern desire to prolong life at all costs has meant that many people are now revived from clinical death. A significant number of these cases experience a perception of being separated from the body, yet retain complete clarity of consciousness and awareness of other dimensions of reality beyond the physical. This phenomenon has become known as the Near Death Experience or NDE. These remarkably consistent experiences, suggesting something other than just hallucination, bear powerful witness to the fact that although dying may be accompanied by pain and personal distress, death itself is in no way frightening. When given the choice of whether to return to their bodies in order to complete an unfinished task, it inevitably proved a difficult decision for them because of their overwhelming feelings of peace, unity and love. This experience has also nearly always led to a dramatic transformation of the personality, a certainty that consciousness continues and a loss of all fear of death."

Near Death Experiences

Raymond Moody's classic book is still a must for those interested in this intriguing field of ground breaking research. Clearly written with enough science to be credible yet not full of jargon to bog down the general reader this is a fascinating read about the near death experience.

In this book Elisabeth Kubler-Ross relates the lessons she learned at the bedsides of hundreds of dying people. She makes it clear that none of us -- even if we die in the midst of the desert -- dies alone going on to show how we are greeted by loved ones who preceded us in death. It is a message of real hope.

Written by a doctor who, at first, did not believe the stories he heard from the children in his care, he eventually he realised that the similarities were too coincidental to be untrue. This book challenges the sceptic’s views of the extinction of consciousness, showing there really is a peaceful paradise awaiting all of us!

The full title of the book is The Big Book of Near Death Experiences: The Complete Sourcebook, and at nearly 460 pages it covers the subject in considerable depth, including a section on how NDE’s affect the structure, chemistry and function of the brain. Well worth a read.

There appear to be many reasons why Souls fail to make a full transition and become trapped or 'earthbound' and still able to influence the physical planes. We explore here some of the issues involved.
