Life after life -Raymond Moody
From Wikipedia,the free encyclopedia
"Raymond Moody (born June 30, 1944) is a psychologist and medical doctor. He is most famous as an author of books about life after death and near-death experiences (NDE), a term that he coined in 1975. Moody's own beliefs on NDEs can be summed up with the following quote from his interview with Jeffrey Mislove:
"I don't mind saying that after talking with over a thousand people who have had these experiences, and having experienced many times some of the really baffling and unusual features of these experiences, it has given me great confidence that there is a life after death. As a matter of fact, I must confess to you in all honesty, I have absolutely no doubt, on the basis of what my patients have told me, that they did get a glimpse of the beyond."
From a study of 150 people who had clinically died or almost died, Moody concluded that there are nine experiences common to most people who have had a near death experience. These are:
1.hearing sounds such as buzzing
2.a feeling of peace and painlessness
3.having an out-of-body experience
4.a feeling of traveling through a tunnel
5.a feeling of rising into the heavens
6.seeing people, often dead relatives
7.meeting a spiritual being such as God
8.seeing a review of one's life
9.feeling a reluctance to return to life "
