Over the last few decades more and more people are talking about experiences that have been called “Near Death Experiences” (or NDE’s). So much so, that when I queried simply NDE in Google, I got many websites/blogs that showed articles, bloggers among them, that have addressed the issue themselves.
Decades prior, discussions formed around three other letters: ESP, Extrasensory Perception, a term that has fallen by the wayside as we move forward. While ESP has been explored and the skeptics have stepped up and been counted, enough so that those having experienced ESP chose to keep quiet or talk in whispers among like-minded individuals. Why continue to face negative feedback from an avalanche of non-believers? Why actively push against the tide that comes at you unabated?
Yet, NDE’s haven’t met that kind of scrunity. Perhaps because the evidence is far more convincing, more widespread without outside influences, and those reporting these incidents are credentialled experts in a field, normally one from medicine.
What I wanted to broach with you here is the idea that both of these ideas have a thing in common: energy.
Life Giving Energy
Energy brings us life, energy brings life to every living thing. As I watch out my window to witness a flock of small birds murmurating from north to south in wide looping circles, I’ve said that they are exercising, but in the grander scheme of things: its is energy that brings them life and allows them to flap their wings and fly in an otherwise calm environment. Without a gust to help them get aloft, the birds wouldn’t be able to gain any altitude without flapping their wings vigorously. They swoop and swirl and climb and descend freely in the air, taking to a branch inevitably to catch their breath.
Its energy that allows a seed to take root and become a tree, and provide the branches for the birds to sit upon. It, too, is very much alive, while it looks as though its widened and sturdy trunk is stationary and unmoving, on a molecular level the tree is as alive as we are. It, too, on occasion, develops a disease and to save its life the offending part must be taken off. It heals, oftten with a scar, to remind us and itself of the journey it has undergone along the way.
The Human Connection
We humans, are energy. Unlike the tree however, we can and do move freely about. We do not find our feet stuck down deep in the soil. We have life, and our movement allows us to live! Just like the tree, it looks solid but it is energy, we look solid but we are energy. Microbiology has shown us that we are energy to the tiniest quark inside an atom. We are made up of trillions of atoms, each one of us, that makes up the bone, muscles, fibers, arteries and veins, neurons and ligaments that we are familiar with.
How does this apply to NDE’s and ESP? We have a physical form, energy coming from each cell. The soul, our individual lifeforce, comes from the center of our physical bodies. NDE’s, when they occur, has shown us that people “leave their bodies” and are often a spectator of the events that are unfolding down beneath them. They are aware that the person they are working on is themselves but they are oddly distanced. There isn’t the panic that a loved one would have if they were to look through a pane of glass only to realize their family member or friend is the one being worked on.
The NDE’s show us that the energy that is our lifeforce is now outside our body, but, we are as whole as we were prior to the surgery/accident/incident. We merely feel no pain, and while experiences can and do vary, the vast majority of these report that they feel only joy, unspeakable joy and a warmth they had never felt before. For those that have undergone a NDE, if they had fear of death prior to the episode, the fear is utterly erased upon awakening.
The energy that allows a person to suddenly be above their own body, is a person’s soul. When God has mentioned that he has created us in his image, he was not referring to a person’s physique, his skin color or his ethnicity. He was speaking of the person’s soul!
Everyone’s soul is a light, a white light, and if you take away the label of color, simply see a light. An orb of light that could be as small as a end of a pin, seen as large as a fifty cent piece or filling a room or area…all of this is YOU! Everything that makes you YOU is within that small dot of light.
God has said in the Bible, “You are the light of the world.” He is speaking of the soul!
Our physical bodies, like the tree, can be sick, injured, or otherwise diseased and remedies are needed to get us back into balance.
There is an entire, vast spectrum of light and energy that we humans are unable to see with the naked eye, or with any known technological means available today. That does not mean that it does not exist. Love exists, you feel it, you know its there but you cannot see it! There is no machine that can detect the amount of love you have for a person, over another person, for example. Yet, it’s tangible in the fact that you feel it. Intuition is also something that people possess, and we feel that, and especially if it is followed, the intuition can and will continue to that person. Intution is energy, energy in thought, sent by God or someone in the spirit world that helps guide you and protect you. You will never, ever be guided into harm’s way by following your “gut” or your intuition. It doesn’t happen that way.
This energy that scientists have been able to see with special cameras have allowed us to become acquainted with aura’s. We all have varying levels of aura’s and for those sensitive enough to see them, can detect colors from others. I once saw my former partner’s aura. She was angry at the time and I saw a pure red color come shooting out of the back of her head (she was seated). These colors are the pure colors that those that have experienced NDE’s speak about. The colors that we humans attempt to replicate are merely that, attempts. They are no match to the real thing.
But, the aura my former partner exhibited was a manifestation of the anger she felt inside. She hadn’t verbally said a thing. She didn’t have to, for I saw how angry she was. “I was so angry I saw red,” you may be familiar with that adage. People that become very angry can and do see red. I’ve only seen red once in my life but I understand the level of anger that a persons feels when they experience this. Do I question its validity? Not at all.
So, all of us are energy packs. Energy begets energy and the more energy you use the more energy you receive and on and on. You must keep moving, the human being is built to move about and interact with other livings things: other humans, animals, vegetation. All of these things are very much alive and all deserve respect on a mutual basis in order to not only survive but thrive.
