Have you had a shared death experience? Have you participated in the NDE of another person? Have you “seen the light” or taken the first part of the spiritual journey of a lifetime with another person who was ready to pass…..only to come back while they continued?
The shared death experience is growing far more common in the spiritual literature, and for some folks I’ve spoken to, it may be a far STRONGER piece of evidence for the afterlife than the NDE. (As most of the common arguments about the NDE don’t apply)
If you’ve had a SDE – we want to hear about it! Share with us via email, or in the community comments below. Here is a good recent featured story on the shared death and NDE from CNN’s website, and their TV special about the afterlife as well.
William Peters was working as a volunteer in a hospice when he had a strange encounter with a dying man that changed his life.
The man’s name was Ron, and he was a former Merchant Marine who was afflicted with stomach cancer. Peters says he would spend up to three hours a day at Ron’s bedside, talking to and reading adventure stories to him because few family or friends visited.
When Peters plopped by Ron’s beside around lunch one day, the frail man was semi-conscious. Peters read passages from Jack London’s “Call of the Wild” as the frail man struggled to hang on. What happened next, Peters says, was inexplicable.
Peters says he felt a force jerk his spirit upward, out of his body. He floated above Ron’s bedside, looking down at the dying man. Then he glanced next to him to discover Ron floating alongside him, looking at the same scene below.
“He looked at me and he gave me this happy, contented look as if he was telling me, ‘Check this out. Here we are,’ ’’ Peters says.
