Death Experience for Adults

Greetings by loved ones Agree: 8 divider Disagree: 1


Both Agreements and DisagreementsWhen an individual crosses over and is met by loved ones, they are going to visualize these loved ones as they remember them. They will see them with vitality, with great joy and in complete peace. They will see them at a time of life that they choose to remember them best.

AgreeMost individuals after death choose a more mature image that usually corresponds to the peak physical abilities, regardless of the age when the physical peak was reached. Others choose instead to take the form they had at the particular point when the greatest mental or emotional heights were achieved, regardless of the beauty or age that characterized the form.

Agree"Without dreaming, without delirium, I actually saw 'J.' and she spoke to me. It was a dreamy consciousness, for I was affected by the exhaustion of my Physical Body. I felt a connection with it [=the 'silver cord'], severed as I was. The mourners around my bed wept. I seemed to feel the force of their grief and I longed to assuage it. Unconsciousness then came. I awokd on a wonderful plain." (Anon. (King's Counsel'), Bear Witness)

AgreeAs Walter sat in a chair...his grandmother appeared standing behind him and the chair. She came to take him over to the spirit side although he had not wanted to go...After some coaxing, he did go into the light as we say, and home with his grandmother.

Agree"I felt a terrible blow on my head, a sensation of dizziness and of falling, then nothing more...Consciousness returned...A kindly doctor came to my bedside and said, 'I want to have a talk with you...You have passed out of the physical body and are in the state you used to know as having died' I could not believe him...Then a gentleman came to speak to me who, I was told, was my grandfather. But I had never seen him before and was not convinced. I felt as if I were living in a dream...The doctor promised that I should be sent to you [his incarnate mother], that the truth might be proved to me...Two friends guided me through the astral plane to the earth. As we came nearer the earth the atmosphere became thicker and misty and the houses and everything seemed indistinct. The view disappeared. I found myself standing in your room...I called, 'Mummy, I'm here! Can't you see or hear me? You made no reply...You have only to concentrate your thoughts on me and they will reach me." (Mrs. L. Kelway, Claude's Book, 1918, pg 2)

I can see your falling tears, I can hear your cries and prayers, Yet I smile and whisper this : -- "I am not that thing you kiss; Cease your tears and let it lie: It was mine, it is not I.
