"Art....I think I need to learn more about this??? NDE?"- Birgit


Near death experiences and deathbed visions have been around for thousands of years. Plato, in his book "The Republic" actually tells the story about a soldier named "Er" who died on the battlefield and then 10 days later as they were gathering up the bodies to be cremated Er woke up and described having been in another place. Er also said that he could no longer live as he had been living because the experience had changed him so much.

Deathbed visions and nearing death awareness are experiences that dying people have close to to the time they are dying. They see their deceased relatives and have conversations, saying things like they a deceased loved one is there and they are going on a trip. My two favorite books, written by hospice nurses are "Final Gifts" written by Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelly, and "Visions, Trips, and Crowded Rooms" written by David Kessler. Both books are excellent and very comforting and uplifting. They are both easy reads and can be read in a couple of days.
