Dying to be Me

Powerful chapters 7,8,9 from arriving at the mega hospital specializing in cancer treatment (oncology) to being described as dead though the full discussion of experiences and to the choice of life. A sharing of euphoria and clarity. Ability to hear anything focused on, conversations close or even in other rooms, to feel the feelings of those around including brother racing back from, India, seeing the room and the faces, the expressions. Communicating with those previously died, father and close friend through no words – though transference if feeling. Totally knowing of body and that the choice to live was also the choice for rapid, very rapid, healing and this was with out doubt.

All this and more.

Can we experience this apparent euphoria of dying without dying?

Join us on Quantum Leap Book Club for a deep dive into these phenomena while exploring chapters 7-9 of Dying to be me by Anita Moorjani.

If you’ve not read much on NDE here’s a short summary of common points.
I do love Anita’s though as the description emanates deep love and non judgement of all.

Near-death experiences (NDEs) have long been a source of fascination, mystery, and contemplation. These profound encounters with the unknown have been reported by individuals who have come close to death but returned with extraordinary stories to tell. While the scientific community grapples with understanding the nature of NDEs, case studies provide valuable insights into this enigmatic phenomenon.

1. The Tunnel of Light:
One of the most common elements in NDE accounts is the sensation of passing through a tunnel of light. A 43-year-old woman named Sarah vividly described her NDE during a car accident. She recalled leaving her body and moving through a dark tunnel toward a radiant light. The experience was accompanied by feelings of overwhelming peace and love, which she carried with her after returning to life.

2. Meeting Deceased Loved Ones:
In some cases, NDEs involve encounters with deceased loved ones. John, a 62-year-old man, had a heart attack and was clinically dead for several minutes. During this time, he encountered his mother, who had passed away years earlier. They had a heartfelt conversation, and she encouraged him to go back, assuring him that it wasn’t his time. John returned to life with a newfound sense of purpose.

3. Life Review:
NDEs often include a life review, where individuals witness key moments from their past, often from the perspective of others affected by their actions. A 30-year-old woman named Mia experienced this during a severe illness. She described seeing her life as a series of interconnected events and felt deep remorse for the times she had hurt others. This life review transformed her into a more compassionate and empathetic person.

4. Unearthly Landscapes:
Some NDEs transport individuals to surreal and otherworldly landscapes. Mark, a 51-year-old man who suffered a stroke, described being in a beautiful meadow filled with vibrant colors and an indescribable sense of tranquility. He felt that he was in the presence of a higher power, which left a lasting impact on his spiritual beliefs.

5. A Sense of Oneness:
Many NDE reports emphasize a profound sense of unity and interconnectedness with all living beings. A 38-year-old named Lisa experienced this during a near-drowning incident. She felt a profound connection to every living thing and described it as a state of “cosmic oneness.” This sense of unity profoundly influenced her outlook on life and her relationships with others.

6. Returning to Life:
The decision to return to life or continue into the afterlife is a common theme in NDEs. Robert, a 47-year-old who had a surgical complication, recalled being in a heavenly realm. He was told he had a choice, and he chose to return to life because he had unfinished business. His NDE left him with a sense of purpose and a renewed commitment to his family.

7. Transformation:
For many NDErs, the experience is life-altering. They often report increased spiritual awareness, reduced fear of death, and a profound appreciation for life. These transformations can be seen in their relationships, outlook, and even their career choices.

In conclusion, near-death experiences are a subject of great intrigue, and these case studies provide a glimpse into the profound, often positive impact they have on the lives of those who undergo them. While science is still grappling with the explanations for NDEs, the stories of individuals who have come close to the threshold of death offer a profound reminder of the enduring mystery of life, death, and the realms beyond. These experiences, whether viewed through the lens of science, spirituality, or personal belief, continue to inspire contemplation and wonder in those who encounter them.

All the best
