A Heavenly Dimension



This doctor's experience with a heavenly realm while in a coma for seven days is remarkable in many ways. Not only was he was under intense medical supervision the entire time he traveled outside his body, he is also a neurosurgeon who didn't believe in the afterlife. One of those physicians that believed all those stories were just a malfunction of the cortex. In his case, not only was his cortex malfunctioning - it was completely off. Not functioning at all!

We live in interesting times.

I just finished reading the entire article. It is fascinating and I will get his book. He was completely changed by the experience, which seems to happen to everyone who has an NDE. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing this. :-)

Interesting! A few months ago I read a book called "Dying to be Me" by Anita Moorjani about a woman and her NDE and how it changed the whole way she lives her life.

We hear so many people talk about the afterlife, and they all seem to have the same experience. I am a firm believer in life after death, and the fact that people tell the same kind of story is proof. Thanks for sharing this.

He's going to be on Whitley Streiber's Dreamland radio show on 10/27 for subscribers and probably early for non-subscribers.

I read Chris Carter's 'Science and the Near-Death Experience' with great enjoyment several years ago. At the time his first book in the series 'Science and Psychic Phenomena' was out of print but I was able to buy a copy earlier this year. Now I'm half-way through the final one 'Science and the Afterlife Experience'. The interesting thing about Chris Carter is that not only does he provide the results of scientific research into these cases but also takes on the professional skeptics with great aplomb.

Rather than write too much here I'll let you check out the Amazon reviews. I think you'd be very interested.

Thank you for this. I'm so glad this fellow chose to be who he is in the world and to have this experience.

These things are always interesting, but I always find it hard to negotiate round my suspicion when someone has a book to sell. These events do certainly change people's lives though.

"Although I considered myself a faithful Christian, I was so more in name than in actual belief. I didn’t begrudge those who wanted to believe that Jesus was more than simply a good man who had suffered at the hands of the world. I sympathized deeply with those who wanted to believe that there was a God somewhere out there who loved us unconditionally. In fact, I envied such people the security that those beliefs no doubt provided. But as a scientist, I simply knew better than to believe them myself." I am sorry, I find it quite disturbing that there was no refuting of that after he came back in the article. Nonetheless, the lengths our Heavenly Father will go to prove Himself as being worthy of our love and trust is truly amazing.
