Life after death


Based on accounts from patients who came back from clinical death when somebody dies, the focus of their consciousness starts expanding. When a person dies, his or her entering the Afterlife is often accompanied by his or her relatives or friends who passed away earlier. Some mediums claim that the spirit analyses and evaluates all the experiences it gained during its life as a human. It examines how his or her actions affected or influenced other people’s life and himself and comes to conclusions. It can even play with thoughts of how things could have happened in case of other decisions. It is like a virtual film that you can interact with at any moment.

The resurrected woman

A woman made a doctor astonished in Florida at the end of September 2014. She suddenly came back to life when doctors wanted to give up the life-saving operation. It was needed to perform a C-section operation on her during giving birth to her daughter but she stopped breathing for two hours.

Ruby Graupera-Casimiro did not have a pulse for 45 minutes meanwhile doctors tried to work on her life with chest decompressions and defibrillators. The doctors were about to give it up when the woman miraculously came around leaving the doctors and nurses fascinated and surprised. The reason for the woman’s heart failure was due to amniotic fluid embolism.

It is a dangerous situation during which the uterine flow into the mother’s bloodstream and reaches the heart, sopping blood circulation. It is a sudden phenomenon which is cannot often be determined on spot, only after the mother’s death.

After hours of life-saving operations, the doctors got ready to say goodbye and pronounced her dead. The doleful husband and family members hugged her and were grateful to God for why he intervened. After leaving the ward, they started to pray for her life. During this time, the doctors wanted to record the time of death when the heart monitor started to beep showing that her heart was beating again. One of the nurses, Claire Hansen run out of the room to the family telling them the good news and urging them to continue praying. The part of the hospital filled out with joyful screams. Her sister rushed back to the room to see with her own eyes what was happening.

The resurrected woman did not realise where she was after she came around. What she remembered is her father had passed away earlier telling her to go back because it was not her time and others needed her.

This is not the first case of the dead appearing in near-death experiences. A number of people who had an accident or were seriously injured have reported seeing their loved ones in a very pleasant environment. They are usually family members or relatives who tell the person to go back because it is not his or her time yet. It seems that the dead know who needs us in this life and they support us to maintain our relationship with the living. Some accidents do not seem to be supposed to happen and life must go on.

The woman realised that there was another life she met and there is nothing to be afraid of when someone is dying. She could go home in a month without any side effects. Another thing that made the doctors surprised was that she had not suffered from any brain damage and she could continue her normal life.

Those who come back from death usually have very positive experiences. They were surrounded by love and they felt safer than ever. They are no longer afraid of death and they know that there is another existence besides our physical reality. Those who return come back with a completely different mindset. What is more, their injuries turn out to be small and they heal fast. They can return to their everyday life soon.

Ruby was very grateful that she could remain with her family and that she would be able to bring up her daughter. One of the doctors, Dr Anthony Dardano said that we already have modern medicine but there are still questions beyond the science that we do not know about.

The spiritual nature of death

When a person dies, their spirit is already waiting for him. But the self is never able to accept death because its biological instincts are fighting for survival. But the spirit prepares it for the fact that it is going to leave this world.

But according to Buddhist priests death is birth. When a death occurs, spirits are reborn in the Afterlife. As a result, birth in our physical reality can be called death if we view it from the angle of the Afterlife.

Whatever terrible situation we have in our physical world – poverty, unfairness, disaster, disease – the self is always part of the spirit and it is never alone. Even if you are crawling in the desert without water or food.

Among Vikings, elite people were moved down a river by boat when they died. In ancient Egypt, boats also had a role in the journey to the Afterlife. Boat passages to the underworld were strictly reserved for pharaohs who had died. I believe boats represent our spirit and guide us to the Afterlife.

But other spirits can also be there around the deceased. People often report encounters with their passed-away relatives and friends who greet them out there.

Some accounts of near-death experiences talk about an expansion of knowledge: dying people sometimes get information that they could not access. They are in this half-conscious state when they gain information about the people’s private life around them at the scene of accidents or in the operation theatre. This information is very detailed including tiny bits of information for example what a person was doing the previous night or they even see their thoughts. All the information about the surroundings comes to them clearly.

In my mind, this phenomenon is the expansion of consciousness. When somebody is dying, his or her consciousness starts expanding and gains supernatural abilities. These abilities regularly disappear after coming back but some people keep them and they become a psychic. What happens here is that they come back with a wider consciousness and they realize how they can utilize it. They get to know the importance of love, developing human relationships and personal growth.

However, there might be cases, when the spirit is not able to go to the Afterlife because certain unsolved problems keep them here. In this case, the spirit remains connected to something in our world: this can be its body, its loved ones, its belongings or anything else that he or she once loved so much that it is unable to leave. When that is the case, I think they stay here as so-called remnants – which means, that they do not completely experience death until they arrange their problems and are ready to leave.
