Beyond Belief: Exploring the Afterlife without Dying with Eben Alexander (May 2016)

Season 6, Episode 7
Available worldwide

Things changed dramatically for Eben Alexander, a neurosurgeon once skeptical of the paranormal, when he had a near death experience. This experience placed him in the unique position to pursue the scientific truth of what happens to us when we die. What he discovered is that consciousness is not produced by the brain; it stems from something much greater. He now shares how we can use our own consciousness to explore the afterlife, without having a near death experience. This interview with George Noory was originally webcast May 18, 2016.

Dr. Eben Alexander, author of Proof of Heaven, is a renowned academic neurosurgeon who spent 54 years honing his scientific worldview. Everything changed the day his life-threatening battle with a rare bacterial meningitis threw him into a seven-day coma. When he woke, the Near-Death Experience (NDE) he'd had--while his neocortex was completely shut down--challenged him to reconsider everything he thought he knew about consciousness and the brain. He has spent the last five years reconciling his rich spiritual experience with contemporary physics and cosmology.

To everything Dr. Alexander had to say

This was a GREAT episode, thank you!, posted on June 6, 2016

This is so spot on. Having had a similar experience, coming into the presence of the Divine and knowing ONENESS with the ALL. It showed me how religion (per se) is manmade, as there is truly no seperateness if you are truly awakened. It is all about love, acceptance and knowing that others are simply another me . I like the way he said the true understanding and spiritual teachings have been hijacked by man and their systems. The main essence of it all is Love,Love, Love.

It's both similar and different from other person's experiences. It's very hard to put into human words the sense of freedom and raised abilities.
However, there is always the responsibilities you have towards the human race and what needs to be done to make the world a better place. This is all part of stewardship of the Earth and humanity on a higher level.

One of the best and most useful episodes! Thank you!

Always find interesting things to watch here. This was a great episode. I'm going to check out Dr. Alexander's event in Tustin next month.

Loving this from a guy with experience.. His perfect storm.
Consciousness is the creator and what is the closest thing to our consciousness our bodies. We are creating our realities with every word , every thought we bring forth. So once we take responsibility for our creations, our lives, we can then shift the energy. Because E=MC2. everything is energy and we are energy shifters. We are mostly unaware of our place in the universe. . Jesus was an aware energy shifter, this is how he healed.
I resonant with Dr Alexander, my understandings have come from my life experiences. I am a biologists having had an experience with the other dimension, An ODE (other dimension experience) my ex-husband had left the planet and he was trying to get my attention... my earth based science background was with me, infulencing me the day the medium told me he had been hanging close from the time of his departure in 2008 until he was released to the light in 2011. I had been having multiple electronic abnormalities.. never dawned on me what was the cause. This totally changed my life, shifted my consciousness. I am spirit having earth experiences and here to teach. My life was a perfect storm. I even wrote a book in 6 weeks about these experiences: "Bits & Pieces of a Biologist's Journey into Spirit". I now see no difference between science and spirituality. Science especially, E=MC2 and quantum physics allows for the understanding the things we have always thought a little crazy.. the psychics gifts, they can read the energy. All the witches we have burned at the stake. For shame.. the forces trying to control the earth just didn't want us to get it. Maybe even that was a facade as well as the Inquisition and the other dogmatic practices of the earth religions trying to control the masses. Just wake up.. we are responsible for our lives, our creations. namaste

Thank you for this installment ~ Could you interview him again ? ? ? Most of my friends have read Proof of Heaven and I am now sharing that Map of Heaven is out and we want Dr. Alexander to know that it is 'easy' to talk of this and share because of his credibility as a Neuro surgeon ~ ~ ~ It is very easy to share this in our world ~ ~ ~ Thank you for this interview and book and also sharing the story of your experience and life ~ including the 'low' points as well ~ ~ ~ Peace :)

Consciousness is awareness in my experience. The more I am aware, the more I become aware, the more I transcend, descend into my roots that are my connection to the divine

I can not believe how amazing this Dr. Alexander is! I have watched this interview 4 times in two days because of how much it pumped me up and confirmed so many beliefs I have already come to feel, mostly thanks to Gaia. You know what I would really love to see though, is this man sit down with someone like Bill Nye, who is an amazing man himself, but just does not seem to connect the dots on life being of the spiritual nature, and we could have them share their evidence for both sides of the coin. My name is Chad "C-Mo" Morris, and I am a rapper/comedian and I just want you guys at Gaia to know that I have already talked hundreds of my friends into checking out your site, and I will continue to do so, no matter how big I ever get. I used to be all about money and women, and had my own spiritual awakening right around the whole 2012 enigma, and now I just plan to be as loving as possible and spread my light all around the world, and places like Gaia make that dream a whole lot more feasible. Thank You to everyone involved and keep up the amazing work!

This interview was a wonderful description of deep consciousness... perhaps Heaven. I have been blessed to experience it a couple of times without having an illness or accident to induce it. It is so beautiful that I can not speak of it without becoming deeply emotional. I appreciate Dr. Alexander's ability to put it all into English.

Another GREAT job b George! Thank You Eben and Gaia! Very Wel Done!

Dr. Alexander - Several years ago I read your book "Proof of Heaven" and was blown away by the information. I want to thank you for being so outspoken - especially as a highly trained surgeon in your field. Talk about irony! It's a wonderful reminder, again, that we are more than this body. You are a brave man for coming forward with this information and I so admire your willingness to share.

George - Thank you for interviewing Dr. Alexander. It was perfect timing in my life and I so appreciate your program. I wish Gaia had a segment of Beyond Belief everyday.
