NDE’s During Childbirth

AngelicView: I find it very interesting how many women have an NDE during childbirth. Different people have differing explanations as to why this might happen. One explanation might be the immense amount of pain the woman is going through. Another, declared by Dolores Cannon, says that the amount of high vibratory frequencies of the child coming in is what causes it. For me, from the “nurse” perspective, childbirth is many times the most life-threatening thing a woman might go through in her whole life.

Many times, though, a woman leaves her body and is watching ‘herself’, below, pushing the baby out. Sometimes, she sees the baby’s spirit enter the body. 

     ~It was too late for a c section so they did a quick forceps delivery and apparently I was ‘dead’ at the time. 

I clearly remember floating above and watching them work on my son to get him breathing, cleaning him up and passing him from relative to relative while they worked on me, and I kept asking people to hand me my baby but nobody answered me.  (Source)

Eliana’s Angel Diaries

AngelicView:  Here is a case where a baby has had two NDE’s, and when she’s 2 1/2 years old begins to talk about them. Lucky for us, her mother has written down what she has said, word for word in a diary.

I promised to write about Eliana’s “talks” about Heaven.

It is hard to do this objectively, so I will try to literally write down the words she said together with a little context. 

I have been keeping a diary, so it will be easy to quote her verbatim. 

Keep in mind that Eliana hardly has been to church the first years of her life. She had to be isolated in order to prevent getting sick…. 

Here is my first diary entry.

Eliana is 2.5 years old. She just started talking. Being bilingual she has a slight speech delay. Amazingly because she is bilingual NOT because of (AngelicView: In spite of?) her “catastrophic” stroke.

Since I quote her literally her sentences are 75% in English and about 25% in Dutch. 

August 10 2012. 

A few months ago , while taking a shower together Eliana blurts out. 

“The doctor didn’t take my “ouwie” away, but God did!” 

“I was really, really dood (dead) and sick.

The ghost brought me naar jou (to you)

I was in de hemel (in heaven) toen (when) ik (I) was ziekie (sick).

I had “ouwie” on my arm.

Rumi: Only That Breath


Only That Breath

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam or Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

The Collective Message Inherent in Exceptional Human Experiences


AngelicView: Rhea White was the author of this article. She had had an NDE when her vehicle had a head-on collision with a truck during a snowstorm. There are not many details about the NDE itself. Here is a short excerpt as posted on Ahhh-thelight.com:

Rhea was driving and having a time of it keeping the car moving forward.

          Stuart suggested she let him try, so they switched places.  They had just about  crested the hill when a big, lumbering coal truck came barreling from the opposite direction and hit their car head-on.  Rhea’s friend, who had only moments before taken the driver’s seat, was killed instantly, and his body pushed her through the windshield, where she ended up on the accident-exposed engine with eleven broken bones.  It was then she had the experience that changed her life. 

          How impossibly strange to experience such a terrifying, tragic, agonizing moment as simultaneously the most wondrous thrill of one’s life!  Yet it was just these excruciating circumstances that precipitated her into a subsequently life-changing near-death experience [NDE] in which she felt herself being held in “the everlasting arms” that went on forever.  She knew — and  knew-that-she-knew — she wasn’t dead!  As if that wasn’t convincing enough, an authoritative Voice said to her,

Near Death Experiences are Actually True Life Experiences




Author, Teacher, Retreat Leader at SilentStay, Napa, California and Assisi, Italy

(Pictures added by AngelicView)

If the near death experiences being shared by many are really to believed, they are actually true life experiences, because what they are describing is our true life in eternity. The vast love and acceptance they are finding upon leaving the confines of body and personality describe a life experience of coming home, coming to the true life which this earthly experience is only a small part of.

Before proceeding, this article is not meant to be a convincer, e.g., whether to believe in NDEs or not. If the stories of people floating above operating tables describing conversations and events happening while their minds are unconscious, people finding relatives in heaven, which they had no previous earthly knowledge of, and the endless examples of people going through a tunnel of light into a realm so different yet so familiar, a realm of love more real then real does not convince people of life after death, maybe there is no convincing. Sorry: Calling all these deeply-felt, life-changing experiences only a chemical reaction in the mind upon nearing death just does not pass the brain or heart test for me.

One of my favorite stories is of a woman in a Seattle hospital who died and on her way through the hospital ceiling while passing into another realm, noticed on the hospital roof an old shoe. Upon her return from heaven and recovering in her room, investigators checked out her story, and sure enough there is an old shoe exactly where she said on the roof! Are we to believe she somehow had been exploring the hospital roof before her accident and near death experience?

Fly! Fly Away Home!

AngelicView: When Carmen found out that her unborn baby had Trisomy 18 – a condition that is incompatible with life – she and her husband made the decision to terminate the pregnancy. What followed was miraculous, in that she was able to observe her baby’s spirit leave her body and return home. Thanks, Carmen, for sharing your story :)

In December 2008 my partner and I were ecstatic to find out I was pregnant. I had never had a child before.

At around 10 weeks I went in for a standard CVS procedure to check for chromosome defects.  It took over a week to get the results that our fetus has a Trisomy 18.  Since this defect causes late term miscarriage or death of the baby within a few days after birth, we decided to terminate the pregnancy.  Because I was at the start of the 2nd trimester, the doctor said I need a D&E abortion with general anesthesia.  This entails going to the GYN doctor the day before and have laminaria (sp?) seaweed sticks inserted into the cervix to open it up in preparation for the procedure the next day.

As my partner and I walked out of the doctor’s office and down the hallway towards the elevator, I had the psychedelic sensation of the floor feeling like it was giving way beneath my feet.  It felt like walking on 1 foot high memory foam. I was telling this to my partner and as we got to the elevator I turned towards him and fainted.  He says that I, “wilted like a flower.” Continue reading

The Reincarnation Case of Anne Frank

AngelicView: I found this article from IISIS (Institute for the Integration of Science, Intuition, and Spirit) very fascinating.


Author: Walter Semkiw, MD, MPH

Astronomer & Skeptic Carl Sagan, 1996: “There are three claims in the [parapsychology] field which, in my opinion, deserve serious study,” the third of which was “that young children sometimes report details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way than reincarnation.”

One of the most culturally significant reincarnation cases involves Barbro  Karlen, who I have had he honor of doing joint presentations with for over a decade. I first met Barbro in 2000 and I now consider her a very goodfriend. I would like to share her experiences with you. At the end of this article, a video may be viewed in which Barbro tells her story in her own words.
