Explore Near-Death Experiences
What is a Near-Death Experience?
According the the Greyson Scale developed by professor & psychiatrist Bruce Greyson, there are 16 defining and common perceptions associated with an NDE. Many stories include the sensation of separating from one’s body and hovering nearby; a feeling of flying through space at the speed of light and being basked with the love of the infinite, spending time in a beautiful, otherworldly realm; or encountering spirits or long-lost relatives. Many people who have a near-death experience return with feelings of bliss and often a changed perspective and purpose for their life.
“Although I didn't take the escalator to the afterlife, whatever the afterlife means, I knew it was there and I could feel that there were many at the top waiting for me. It felt loving and reassuring, even though it was something I'd never considered being real before that very moment.”
Signs You’ve Had a Near-Death Experience
Sometimes people return from a near-death experience and piece it together slowly as the effects become more noticeable. Some of these signs include:
- A heightened sensitivity to light, sound, and certain chemicals
- Having a strange influence on electrical equipment
- Being more caring and generous, sometimes to a fault
- Having trouble with keeping time and managing finances
- Feeling unconditional love for everyone
Mo Abdelbaki recalls his near-death experience that occurred nearly 30-years ago as he came down with a bout of double pneumonia, that left him nearly suffocating with only one quarter of a lung left. Similar to others who have a NDE, Mo saw a brilliant white light and was reunited with a spirit in the form of his father. Learn why he chose to come back instead of taking the escalator to the other side, and how this choice has made a profound impact on his entire life and purpose.

“Although I have been aware of the Dr. Moody and his work in near-death studies, this was the first time I've heard him interviewed. What a delightfully upbeat, articulate and eloquent guest! I truly enjoy the convivial interaction between you, George, and Dr. Moody. I look forward to future interviews with him. Loved his definition of a skeptic!”
