Near-death experiences

“I remember when YOU were a baby in heaven, Mom!”

I saw YOU as a baby in heaven,  Mom!"

Janelle:  “My six-year-old grandson Chase is almost always smiling. We asked him years ago if he was always happy. He replied, ‘Yes, I am. Why would anybody want to be sad?’ 

“My Grandson was born a preemie…3 lbs. 10 oz! The doctors claim he almost died during the life flight.

“He tells us all about spending time with God, and how God knows everything, but it’s not at all how we learn things!

“Also, none of the pictures he has seen are ‘how Heaven really looks at all!’

Are we Born by Choice?

Are we born by choice?  Can those who have NDEs REVIEW their pre-birth plans?Do we get to choose aspects of our Earthly lives before birth – from what sort of people our parents will be, to having certain experiences along the way? 

Is there any evidence to support that we design our lives ahead of time like someone putting together a stage production – choosing actors, settings, plot points, etc?

Let’s look at evidence from Near Death Experiences (NDEs) of people who say they reviewed the Pre-Birth Planning stage of their life when the veil was lifted their NDE:

DeLynn suffered with cystic fibrosis, an incurable genetic disease. When he shook hands with death, the Heavenly Father explained, “You have suffered as much pain in thirty-seven years as a normal person in seventy-six years. You chose your disease and the amount of pain you would be willing to suffer when you were in a pre-mortal state.”

DeLynn had doubts until he agreed to go back in time to when he made his pre-birth decision.

Plato’s Myth of Er

platoWas this a near-death experience?

At the end of Plato’s Republic (written around 400-300 BC), a warrior named Er, who “died” in battle, observed a towering band of light resembling a rainbow, only brighter and purer. It seemed to be a passageway by which souls journey back and forth to Earth. Most western philosophers and other scholars, who lack insights and information from recent discoveries about near-death experiences (NDEs), tend to interpret Er’s experience as only an allegory, yet it offers striking parallels to modern NDE accounts being reported by thousands of people. Today modern researchers are taking a new look at Er’s account by Plato.

Greek culture is filled with stories of healers, oracles, and miracle-workers – the iatromanteis. We even find records of “air-travellers” who knew how to leave their bodies at will in order to visit celestial worlds and remote earthly locations.

Parallel III

I finally arrived in our solar system by coming through a ray of light and descending into the Sun. — Thakur Anukulchandra

Historical Gifted memories parallel Thakur Anukulchandra’s memory of coming in as a ray of Light.

  • Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa (1836-1886), enlightened master, India) – At the time of his chief disciple Vivekananda’s birth, Ramakrishna saw a shattered ray of divine energy flash across the sky from Benares to Calcutta where Vivekananda was being born at the same instant. Ramakrishna jumped in joy and announced, “My prayer is answered. You have taken a body for my sake.”

  • Plato’s Republic (Ancient Greece) Greek philosopher Plato pictured creation as three zones: ethereal, aerial, and material. He said the soul’s journey to Earth begins in the ethereal universe, its birthplace.

The Secret Mysteries of Birth

thakur_pabna

Rare are those among us who seem to remember anything about our first breath at birth, what transpired in the nine months inside the womb or even our existence before our biological conception.

Our first memories of living in the body are steeped in deep mystery and lie hidden beneath layers of veiled consciousness.

How fascinating, then, to find gifted individuals who experience a conscious birth, who recall the realms of the cosmos from where they journeyed to reach Earth, as well as their reasons for coming here. We describe memory of events occurring prior to life in a physical body and developing a physical brain – “gifted memory.” William Wordsworth, the 19th Century English poet refers to Gifted Memory when he says:

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: the Soul that rises with us, our Life’s Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, and cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.

Gifted Memory suggests that consciousness is not confined to a physical body, and that memory is independent from having a brain and neurological system.
