After decades of interviewing people who were clinically dead and were revived, Moody believes consciousness does go on after it leaves the body. This is a belief shared by Eben Alexander, MD, a Harvard neurosurgeon who had a near-death experience and wrote about it in Proof of Heaven.
Near Death Experience Caused Elton John To Retire
In my graduate training and post-doctoral clinical work, the topic of death and dying was largely ignored, with two major self-directed exceptions. The five stages she identified are denial, anger , bargaining, depression and acceptance.
She was a pioneer in the founding of the hospice movement which offers palliative care and psychological support to terminally ill patients and their families. In many ways she revolutionized how American medicine thinks about death. However, clearly, there is still much work to be done. I met her at her training retreat in a beautiful old Spanish monastery in Escondido, California.
It was a transformative experience which continues to play an important role in how I think about life, death and patient care. For me, she remains a psychiatric giant. Campbell is a brilliant physicist who has been working on a unifying philosophy of physics, a virtual model of the universe and challenging existing models of reality. Campbell believes that consciousness does not have a material cause—that it cannot be located in the brain. As to the question of what happens when we die, we will all have the opportunity to find out.
Will Retirement be Like a Near Death Experience?
However, in the meantime, the work of Moody and others gives us some fascinating and hopeful glimpses of what may come. My notion is that Biology is a vehicle for consciousness but doesn't "create" it. Just an armchair comment here That said, at one point in my life I suffered a paralysis due to a brain injury. I could no more move my left side than I can will an object to move. No connection, no movement. No brain, no issues!
It's a hell of an eraser - I doubt we'll be aware of a damn thing. Still, there's some "funny business" going on outside our perception I think and mostly hope for. A fascinating subject, one so hard to prove or disprove. How would science do that? I didn't know what it was at the time, except just 'strange'. I didn't see the activity involving the incident.
At the end was a beautiful park not where I physically was with people walking. They stopped and looked at me, as if I wasn't supposed to be there. Suddenly I was being pulled backwards, now in pitch black, a darkness with NO light whatsoever. I felt desperate hands grabbing at me. Then I awoke. I asked my friend if anyone had been grabbing at me - No. I didn't know what this experience was until a few years later.
My conclusion - it was not my time, the 'world' I saw The pitch black was scary.
Hell isn't brimstone, it's a place of total darkness, where lost souls sinners go. They wanted out and saw the opportunity and tried to 'hitch' a ride. The experience did help me stay 'good' while growing up. I have no fear of dying, which is good because of medical issues. I pray that if there is a life after this one, it's a better one with compassionate people.

And no Trump! It's a place of total darkness, where lost souls sinners go. I could sue you for defamation. You're lucky i'm not judgemental type.
Nevertheless lying is a sin didn't you know? So better forget about heaven. But don't worry. That other guy might have a strict door policy. I however accept everyone. We are all about acceptance down here. We don't discriminate.
We don't build walls to keep people out. We always let everyone in. You could say that our politics are a perfect match. You'll fit right in here. Smh and lmao. First of all, you couldn't 'sue' me for defamation. Since you think you're so intelligent, I'll let you figure out why, all by yourself! You contradict yourself right off the bat.
You say you're not judgemental, yet you just passed 'judgement' on me.
Doctor, author tells Crain's health summit of near-death experience, how it changed her care
I simply shared my weird experience from when I was a kid and it did help guide me, served as a reminder not to go astray because there is a very, very dark place for those who lose their way. Who knows if there really is a 'Satan'. I didn't see anyone matching the description. Of course he welcomes anyone. Not because he cares. He needs the souls to feed on. I'm sure he's eager for you to come visit. That must make you very happy. What kind of evil deeds do you have on your resume to show him?
Or did you bypass the actual actions and coerce someone else to do the evil deeds for you? Just curious Ellie Ellie Ellie Why the hostility? I invite you into my home and this is how you repay my kindness? I offer you my hand in friendship. I'm not judging you Ellie.
That's the other guy's job. He's the one judging you. How am i the bad guy here? I'm not the one making the decisions here. I didn't make these ridiculous rules. Nor did i ever coerce anyone to do any evil deeds. Free will has always been my trademark. I'm not evil, just misunderstood.
I really don't understand why you're so angry with me. I'm one of your oldest friends. Dont you remember we use to play hide and seek when you were little? You were afraid i would be hiding under your bed or in the closet? Maybe we can play again sometime? XXX Your old friend Satan. No hostility here. You're the one threatening to sue. Most people don't appreciate that. I found it amusing if not ridiculous, for reasons which obviously you are unable to suss out, since it was not addressed again.
I'll pass on the offer of friendship.
