Celebrity Near-Death Experiences (Updated)

Jul 28

The near-death experiences of rich and famous people are particularly interesting. They are rolling in the money. They are known all over the world. They are often beautiful, articulate and very talented in what they do. With this in mind, why would such a person reveal to everyone that they were dead and came back to life? Money? They already got that. Fame? They are already famous. In fact, by telling everyone they came back from the dead, they may be risking their own reputation. People who reveal such things to others often become the butt of jokes or thought to be crazy. Why would anyone rich and famous subject themselves to this when it might result in lost fame and fortune? The only rational reason that such people who have nothing to gain is that it really happened to them and they want to share it with the world. The following are rich and famous people who risked it all to tell the world about their near-death experience….

The Ghosts of Japan’s 2011 Tsunami (Updated)

The Ghosts of Japan’s 2011 Tsunami (Updated)

Apr 13

Excerpt: “Reverend Kaneda exorcised 25 spirits from Rumiko Takahashi. They came and went at the rate of several a week. All of them, after the wartime sailor, were ghosts of the tsunami. For Kaneda, the days followed a relentless routine. The telephone call from Rumiko would come in the early evening; at nine o’clock her fiancé would pull up in front of the temple and carry her out of the car. As many as three spirits would appear in a single session. Kaneda talked to each personality in turn, sometimes over several hours: he established their circumstances, calmed their fears and politely but firmly enjoined them to follow him towards the light. Kaneda’s wife would sit with Rumiko; sometimes other priests were present to join in with the prayers. In the early hours of the morning, Rumiko would be driven home. ‘Each time she would feel better, and go back to Sendai, and go to work,’ Kaneda told me. ‘But then after a few days, she’d be overwhelmed again.’ Out among the living, surrounded by the city, she would become conscious of the dead, a thousand importunate spirits pressing in on her and trying to get inside…”

New Book: ‘The Angel Effect’

New Book: ‘The Angel Effect’

Jan 08

In his previous bestseller, The Third Man Factor, John Geiger examined stories of explorers who found themselves at the edge of death and experienced a benevolent presence that led them out of the impossible. After that book’s publication, Geiger was inundated with firsthand accounts from people who’d had the same experience — a visitation that aided them as they faced crises ranging from physical and sexual assaults to automobile accidents, airplane crashes, critical illness, childbirth, and devastating depression.

In The Angel Effect, Geiger brings together a breathtaking collection of personal stories about people who experienced what he now calls the Angel Effect. He argues that the Angel Effect has the potential to aid us, even to save us, and questions whether or not calling on a benevolent presence is a trainable skill that can be applied in moments of great need…

New Book: ‘Science and the Afterlife Experience’

New Book: ‘Science and the Afterlife Experience’

Oct 21

Just how strong is the case for the survival of consciousness beyond death? You may never get a better answer to that question than in the pages of Chris Carter’s Science and the Afterlife Experience, the concluding volume of his masterful trilogy on science and the paranormal. The first two books — Science and Psychic Phenomena and Science and the Near-Death Experience — had been important books for me, so I eagerly awaited this third book. The book is organized around three major lines of evidence: the apparent past-life memories of children, apparitions, and purported messages from the dead through mediums. With each of these three lines, Carter first presents a series of well-researched and well-documented cases. These cases are an education in themselves. They are so impressive that I found many of them stretching my view of what is possible…

Review Of Raymond Moody’s New Book: ‘Paranormal’

Review Of Raymond Moody’s New Book: ‘Paranormal’

Feb 22

In his new book Paranormal: My Life in Pursuit of the Afterlife, co-written with Paul Perry, Moody gives us the background behind his investigations into NDE’s and other, even more esoteric phenomena. The book is briskly paced, engagingly written, and remarkably open. Perhaps the most surprising revelation is that for most of his life Moody has suffered from a serious thyroid condition that can cause severe mood swings, and that, during one period of intense depression when his thyroid had essentially shut down, he attempted suicide and had a brief, preliminary NDE (or at least the prologue to an NDE) of his own…

Annie Cap: ‘Beyond Goodbye’

Annie Cap: ‘Beyond Goodbye’

Feb 06

In her hospital bed in Oregon 5000 miles away, Annie’s mother, Betty, started to gag and suffocate as she came closer to death. At exactly the same time and unaware of what was happening Annie, at work in England, started to choke. Then sensing she must call, Annie urgently telephoned to say “goodbye” one last time. Hearing her mother’s labored breathing, she understood – miraculously her mother had reached across the heavens to be with her as she began to die. Shortly after her mother’s death, more unusual occurrences began to happen. Night after night, her mother reached from the “other-side” to comfort her – and this was only the beginning. Unexpectedly, sharing in her mother’s final moments acted as some kind of catalyst. Annie’s intuitive and psychic abilities instantly and dramatically increased, and ultimately led to a renewal of her faith. As a non-believer, who had rejected religion from a young age, she was completely transformed by her experiences…

Mar 24

Barbara Harris Whitfield shares the story of her two near-death experiences. According to Barbara, this interview was done for Entertainment Tonight 20 years ago. Barbara’s two near-death experiences happened in a hospital a week apart. Barbara had been an atheist until her experiences and became a theist afterward. In her first NDE, after leaving her body she went to a dark place and met her deceased grandmother. During the second experience, she had a peculiar and insightful life review, seeing scenes of her life in bubbles. She could experience the feelings of all the people she had interacted with. This led to her knowing of the interconnectedness of all people: “We can feel, then, how everything we’ve ever done or said affected others. The sense is that we don’t end at our skin. It is an illusion that we are separate. This deep review of our life shows us that at a higher level of consciousness we are all connected.”
