No surprise there. Time and again I have read that the brain does weird things when oxygen-deprived.

Fascinating how many closed minds there are in the comments on the site. For instance (paraphrased), "I didn't have an experience, therefore I don't believe you did." Huh? How does that follow? You can tell me you don't believe mine was real, but you can't tell me I didn't have one, because you weren't there. And many others, just that one was so obvious.

MAY is key here. What's next, the dismantling of apparitions, visions in favor of scientific explanation?

Read 'Proof of Heaven', by Dr Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon. He didn't believe either, till he came out of a seven day coma and immediately was back to normal. He wasn't expected to live.

I have arranged for my body to be kept for several days, There is life in the body that is not the life of the person who operates the body. There is the body entity (soul) and others. My body is living, alive and communicates with me as I do with my body. Keeps me healthy. I don't want the body entities (recognized by several religions and NOT demons,) I don't want them to suffer but have time to leave the corpse.

Many of the native religions of varying countries give tribute to other souls resident in the body.

Kabbalah says there are seven souls.

Proof of Heaven by Elen Alexander
[Dr. Eben Alexander III, Neurosurgeon and Author]

>>> * As Zee's previous post is a testament to the individual's acceptance and belief in our levels of life, and each one of us have a personal experience and reverance regarding what makes up our individuality and spiritual essence, and perhaps, even what continues to grow - past this earth life. The quest for truth endures, ...

from Eben Alexander:
His messages to those who deal with dying is one of relief. “Our spirit is not dependent on the brain or body,” he said. “It is eternal, and no one has one sentence worth of hard evidence that it isn’t.”
