Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) have occurred across time, cultures, and belief systems. Could these widespread events be merely coincidental, a physical response in the brain, or something more meaningful? Learn more about near-death experiences with Gaia and decide for yourself.
WHAT IS A NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE?
According the the Greyson Scale there are 16 defining and common perceptions associated with an NDE. The most common can include seeing heaven, reuniting with loved ones, or witnessing a bright glowing tunnel of light. 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.”
— MO ABDELBAKI
