The Question

The question is only as good as the answer.Something about that always tickles my thoughts, like an ancient answer being whispered in the winds waiting for someone to come along and listen.The other half is the answer was only as good as the question asked.During my fast tract along the spiritual path, I've asked my self tons of questions enough to write several novels, anything to find the answer of the ultimate question, to ask the ultimate question reminding me of the outer limits or the…See More

More sudden Mysticism…" It all has a purpose"

 Mystical experience:"It was a moonlit night in early autumn more than 30 years ago. A friend and I in a park, sitting on a bench in a sculptured garden and marveling at the bright full moon. It gave everything an ethereal, wondrous quality. Looking back, I think it was this momentary skewing of perception that opened my mind to the vision. I looked up and there, in the clouds, I saw men, women, children, as if in a parade. There were soldiers too - many in ancient uniform. As they passed in…See More

Spiritual science - is revealed to us as we go along

"Someone will say, ‘Before I commit to a spiritual teaching, I want to be given irrefutable proof that God and invisible beings exist… And I also want proof of the immortality of the spirit and of life after death.’ Poor thing! They’ll have to wait a long time – their whole life possibly! And in the meantime, since they won’t be doing anything, they will prevent their best qualities from developing.When a person is like this, it is like someone in the dark not wanting to switch on the light…See More

Welcome To NHNE's NDE Resource Center & Social Network!

Welcome to NHNE's Near-Death Experience Resource Center & Social Network. This network has been created for people who are interested in exploring all aspects of the near-death experience (and related phenomena) -- and meeting others who share similar interests. Along with seeking a deeper understanding of the experiences themselves, this network also exists to help those who are interested embody the core truths of NDEs in our day-to-day lives. For an overview of this important topic, see David Sunfellow's video presentation How Near-Death Experiences Are Changing The World. You may also be interested in David's evolving Formula for Creating Heaven on Earth, which is based on the core truths found in near-death experiences around the world. For fast-breaking news, information, and links to NDE-related books, videos, websites and other resources, check out NHNE's NDE pages on Facebook, Google+Twitter, and NHNE Pulse. NHNE also sponsors the NDE Stories website which showcases some of the most inspiring, informative, and deeply compelling near-death experiences (and related phenomena) ever recorded.

Near-Death Experience Quotes

"In this remarkable book, Ring presents evidence that merely learning about the near-death experience has similar effects to those reported by people who actually have had near-death experiences. Kenneth Ring is one of the few authors whose gifts include the capacity to transform their readers' lives."

-- Stanley Krippner, writing about Kenneth Ring's book Lessons from the Light


"For me personally, I'm showing more love to others now than before I started my near-death-experience studies. My understanding of near-death experiences has made me a better doctor. I face life with more courage and confidence. I believe NDErs really do bring back a piece of the afterlife. When NDErs share their remarkable experiences, I believe a piece of the afterlife, in some mysterious way, becomes available to us all."

-- Jeffrey Long, author of Evidence of the Afterlife


"'It's like climbing right inside a movie of your life,' says one Near-Deather. 'Every moment from every year of your life is played back in complete sensory detail. Total, total recall. And it all happens in an instant....' During this instantaneous and panoramic remembrance NDRers reexperience all the emotions, the joys and sorrows, that accompany all of the events in their life. More than that, they feel all of the emotions of the people with whom they have interacted as well. They feel the happiness of all the individuals to whom they've been kind. If they have committed a hurtful act, they become acutely aware of the pain their victim felt as a result of their thoughtlessness. And no event seems to be too trivial to be exempt....

"Whitton has uncovered evidence that thoughtless acts are not the only things that cause individuals remorse during the life review. Under hypnosis his subjects reported that failed dreams and aspirations -- things they had hoped to accomplish during their life but had not -- also caused them pangs of sadness."

-- Michael Talbot, from his book, The Holographic Universe


"I'm not asking you to believe anything. I'm simply telling you what I believe. And I have no idea what the next life will be like. Whatever I saw was only from the doorway, so to speak. But it was enough to convince me totally of two things from that moment on: One, that our consciousness does not cease with physical death; that it becomes, in fact, keener and more aware than ever. And secondly, that how we spend our time on earth, the kind of relationships we build, is vastly more important than we can know."

-- George G. Ritchie, M.D., summarizing his famous near-death experience which helped launch the near-death experience movement. From his book, Return From Tomorrow. Readers may also be interested in Ordered to Return: My Life After Dying by George G. Ritchie and Ian Stevenson.


"I have never interviewed anyone who had a near-death experience who told me that they came back to make more money or to spend more time at their jobs away from their families... Instead, they become convinced that they need to be more loving and kind. They react to their experience by living life to its fullest. They believe their lives have a purpose, even if that purpose is obscure to them. Invariably it involves concepts such as love of family or service to others. They seem to know that the love they create while living will be reflected and radiated back to them when they die."

-- Melvin Morse, M.D., from his book, Parting Visions


“I looked up and I saw this light; it wasn’t a normal light, it was different. It was luminescent. And it grew. I kept looking at it like, ‘What is that?’ Then it grew large and I went into it.

“I went into this tunnel, and I came into this room that was just beautiful. God held me, he called me by name, and he told me, ‘Mary Jo, you can’t stay.’ And I wanted to stay. I protested. I said, ‘I can’t stay? Why not?’ And I started talking about all the reasons; I was a good wife, I was a good mother, I did 24-hour care with cancer patients.

“And he said, ‘Let me ask you one thing -- have you ever loved another the way you’ve been loved here?’ And I said, ‘No, it’s impossible. I’m a human.’ And then he just held me and said, ‘You can do better.’ ”

-- Mary Jo Rapini, describing her near-death experience


“He looked down at me and he said, ‘you’re not supposed to be here. It’s not time for you to be here.’

“And I remember looking up at him and saying, ‘but I want to be here’… With all my heart, I wanted to be there. I wanted to go home. I was happy.

“And he took a pause and… you could see him thinking about something and deciding whether to say something. And with that… there was a picture placed in my head of a memory of my original agreement of why I had come to Earth to begin with. It was like I remembered and I went, ‘Oh, right. Right…’

“One of the things that bothers me so tremendously about the metaphysical movement, in lieu of my experience and in lieu of what I was shown… if there is any message I can give, it’s not about meditating and leaving your body and taking your Light Being out of this Earth. Indeed, not. It is about bringing the Light into this Earth. Stay here. Be an anchor. Let the Light come in through you into this world. Don’t abandon this world. We need you. We need you here. We need you to be present. And we need you to be open, with an open heart… Everybody must be open. To bring this new age in, it is about opening your heart and letting it sing through you. It is coming! And it is a matter of all of us. Just open your heart and let It come in. Don’t leave. Don’t meditate and think this place is a bad place and we’re going to get out of here. This is a wonderful place. And it’s going to get even more wonderful. You’re here to anchor the Light so It can come into this dimension and be here.”
