LIFE AFTER DEATH: Is this heart attack victim’s near death experience PROOF OF GOD?
The lady, who goes by the name of only Heather, was in hospital for an operation when there was a problem with the anaesthesia drip line which caused her heart to stop for a total of two minutes and 45 seconds.
This caused her to temporarily die and in the moments she was dead, she claims to have gained proof of God.
Writing on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), Heather says: “I was flying about eight feet over my body. I was watching the scene below as the nurse scrambled through the cabinet looking for something.
“I thought I was in a dream state until I looked at the EKG and it was all flatlines with the alarms were going off.”
The woman claims to have entered a tunnel
At this point, Heather says that she knew she was dying and tried to “dive back” into her body, but was instead sucked into a dark tunnel where says she found proof of God.
Heather said: “At the end of this tunnel was the most beautiful place in existence. I seemed to have arrived back in the room but in another dimension.
“I was looking at everyone and everything in that hospital through what I can only describe as ‘through the eyes of God’. I felt the Love of God for all these people in the hospital.
“I began getting an information download. There was no talking, just information going into me with absolute love.
“It was very clear, very loud, and very certain, that We are ALL VERY IMPORTANT TO GOD.”
Heather then says she ended up in Heaven.
She continued: “In this place we go to, we will have lightness, laughter and joy, and our soul family is there waiting for us.
“I recognised a big crowd of people around me, but they didn’t have human form. I recognised their souls.
“They had pink shapes but also resonated to the energy which was them. My great-uncle Steve, I felt him there.
“The next moment I was in my body and squeezed the doctor’s hand who was holding my hand.”
Some researchers, however, state Heather’s story is a normal phenomenon and not necessarily a sign from Heaven.
Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, told a recent Oz Talk: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.
Did the woman get proof of God?
“They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them. They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.
“A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”
Dr Parnia says there are scientific explanations for the reaction, and says seeing people is not evidence of the afterlife, but more likely the brain just scanning itself as a survival technique.
He said thanks to modern technology and science “death does not have to be limited to philosophy and religion, but it can be explored through science.
“They can hear things and record all conversations that are going on around them.”
