The Painful Truth is looking for people who have had near death experiences. If you care to contribute to this project, the Email address is at the bottom of the page. Here is one article on the subject by JohnO, a former WCG minister. The link above has several more links to other articles on the subject.
Triggers of Near-Death Experiences
How NDEs can be induced
Stanislav Grof, M.D., is a psychiatrist and one of the leading
researchers into non-ordinary states of consciousness. In Tom Harpur's
NDE documentary entitled
Life After Death, Grof
explains a theory of consciousness based on these non-ordinary states.
It assumes that consciousness may not even be localized in the skull at
all. The brain functions as a "reducing valve" which reduces the cosmic
energy and input that bombards our skull. Our conscious mind may be a
product of this reducing function of the brain. When the reducing
function is altered (through various triggers such as drugs, psychosis,
psychic ability, etc.) or even shut down completely (producing a NDE),
the cosmic energy and input that once made up our consciousness is then
free to expand. This expansion is what explains these various types of
mental visions. This theory allows for many appropriate triggers which
could alter this reducing function of the brain. From the large
collection of NDEs I have collected, I have found the following triggers
where are capable of doing just that.
Trance mirror gazing
An elderly woman had been blind since childhood. But, during her NDE,
the woman had regained her sight and she was able to accurately
describe the instruments and techniques used during the resuscitation
her body. After the woman was revived, she reported the details to her
doctor. She was able to tell her doctor who came in and out, what they
said, what they wore, what they did, all of which was true. Her doctor
then referred the woman to Moody who he knew was doing research at the
time on NDEs.
Example 2: One patient told Moody, “After it was all over the doctor told me that I had a really bad time, and I said, ‘Yeah, I know.' He said, ‘Well, how do you know?' and I said, ‘I can tell you everything that happened.' He didn't believe me, so I told him the whole story, from the time I stopped breathing until the time
I was kind of coming around. He was really shocked to know that I knew everything that had happened. He didn't know quite what to say, but he came in several times to ask me different things about it.”
Example 3:In another instance a woman with a heart condition was dying at the same time that her sister was in a diabetic coma in another part of the same hospital. The subject reported having a conversation with her sister as both of them hovered near the ceiling watching the medical team work on her body below. When the woman awoke, she told the doctor that her sister had died while her own resuscitation
was taking place.
The doctor denied it, but when she insisted, he had a nurse check on it. The sister had, in fact, died during the time in question.
