Death Bed Visions
Lots of people are interested in the subject of Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) and After Death Communications (ADC’s) but few people are familiar with Death Bed Visions, in which people who are dying experience the presence of those who have gone before them. I find the topic fascinating and the likelihood of it being true, immensely comforting. David Kessler (who was present at the death of Elizabeth Kubler Ross) has done some interesting research into the subject : http://grief.com/ , http://davidkessler.org/ & http://www.amazon.com.au/Visions-Trips-And-Crowded-Rooms-ebook/dp/B003QXMYO8. Here’s a couple of videos that discuss the issue. Anyone who has spent time in palliative care or spoken to staff who work in palliative care, will know that it’s common for the dying to talk about seeing people that others can’t see. It seems to me, that it’s unlikely to be a byproduct of changes in the brain nearing death (although it seems likely the brain is changing and that is what allows people to see the dead). I think it’s what really happens – the dead return to comfort us and to let us know they are waiting. Why should death be any different to birth ?
