Read the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Their are layers of levels of consciousness to go through. or read Eben Alexander’s account of his NDE. he was in the “muck” and them came us to heavenly landscapes repeatedly. unfortunately,I don’t have all the answers. And the ones who think they do — don’t. We reach a point where we come up against a wall of unknowing that can be called “a Divine mystery.”

TheBigBadDOG18 says:

These near death experiences are due to the chemical DMT in your brain being released when you die.

Tristan Luke says:

Wow, you are a great lady.  Thank you for sharing this amazing stuff.

Barbara, thank you for sharing your beautiful experience. I have never experienced an NDE but I really enjoy reading about them and have found that, much as you suggested, reading about them has helped me to cope with the fear of death. I would, however, like to know your opinion of some of the scarier NDE’s people claim to have experienced, either of the “void” variety or an outright hellish NDE experience?

Barbara Whitfield says:

Michael, write me at my website which leads to my blog for a more personal chat.

Michael Taylor says:

Thank you,Barbara for your timely response.I did not sexually harm a child,rather the abuse was physical.Either way,it was not acceptable behavior:( I have great love for people at times..then at other times i am so cold and shut down.Anyways,i’m a wreck emotionally and am plagued by negative energy nearly everyday.Sorry to bug you with my problems.Thank you again for your response.

Barbara Whitfield says:

And one more thing, perhaps eventually you could find this person you abused and make amends if that is possible. It’s not alway possible but with the help of a therapist and perhaps a sponsor from a 12 step program you could decide what to do.
You were given a heavy burden as a child, and you made a mistake but I believe from my encounter with this benevolent energy that held me — that we are all God’s Children and God Loves us. So God wants us to heal so we can love ourselves and know peace.

Barbara Whitfield says:

shame as our identity. Perhaps you could find a therapist in your area who understands the after effects of child abuse because you are acting out of what happened to you as a child and there is a way out with help. There are also many different 12 step programs that are free. Google Adult Children Anonymous. Also called Adult Children of Alcoholics but that is their old name. With the help of a therapist and the fellowship of a 12 step program you can overcome this terrible pain you have become

Barbara Whitfield says:

Dear Michael,
This is my husband’s area of expertise– not mine. He has many books about this and I would suggest you get Memory and Abuse by Charles Whitfield, MD. At the end he has an appendix on the traits of a sexual predator that you should read. If you only did this once — you are not a pedephile. People who are sexually abused as children many times go on to abuse. You realized it was wrong and you never did it again. Those of us who abused as kids – physical and sexual take on (continue

Michael Taylor says:

when I was 12 I accepted Christ.I am now 45.If I could turn back time and undo what i’ve done,I would in an instant! I live in constant,daily shame.I am so so so beyond sorry for what I did.Do you feel that God still loves me??I question if my childhood experiences fostered my horrific actions?All I know for sure is that I am heart broken beyond words and live in daily grief not knowing for sure if God loves me.I guess I deserve what I have coming.Thank you again,Barbara.

Michael Taylor says:

Hello Barbara,and thank you for helping others.This is hard for me to share,but as a child I was abused emotionally and physically by a mentally ill Mother.I was also molested several times by an older man in my town as well as an uncle.I was always a humble boy and as far as i remember,nice to others.in my late teens/early twenties I did something horrible,I abused a child physically,I think about it everyday and am beyond sorry,not for fear of judgement but because I truly am sorry..continued

Ivy LaWren says:

Thank you! I really enjoyed listening to your experience! Barbara, you have such a beautiful spirit that is filled with the love of God! Thank you once again for sharing!

Barbara Whitfield says:

It seems to me from my own experiences and research, that we all, what ever color, race or religion or no religion — can have and do have these experiences. But the reporting of them may be skewed by a lack of trust. These experiences are so personal and intense that telling others, especially strangers is difficult. I know it took me quite a while to trust Kenneth Ring enough to let him interview me. But once I did — I didn’t want to stop. I also told him about my patients in ICU telling me.

Barbara Whitfield says:

I don’t make these things up. I report what we are told when we interview. And, you make a good point.
Most if not all of the researchers in this field are caucasian and most everyone we (at least where I was — University of Connecticut Medical School in the 1980s) interviewed were white. Native Americans report these experiences triggered in many ways besides being close to death including in their sacred ceremonies. So do other cultures but the Afro-American community reporting is rare.

Atomic Kitten says:

LOL, it’s almost racist how people always tell stories about white angels with blond hair…. like if god was racist and doesn’t have black angels with….black hair? or any color other than white angel with blond hair…

TheSparrowshope says:

Barbara, Thank you for sharing your story. One of the amazing things about God is that before you knew him, he knew you! He is love & IS infinite because he is the Alpha & Omega, (beginning & the end) & so he already knew that that time would come when he would reveal himself to you & that he would send you back. It is not the same to “meet” God as it is to “know” him. Our infinite minds can never fully know him. It is a journey that we take for our whole life. Thank you again for sharing.

Mark Dohle says:

Beautiful, thank you for sharing.

Dana Benedicta says:

I could hug You for each word You say here: feels as if I knew You from forever. I´ll be praying for Your mission, grateful for You and Your transparent soul through which the Love of God can shine on others.
Your sister, Dana.

“we should look at life from the right perspective: this is a moment “in between” two eternities”/ St.Therese a´Lisieux- I am shure she likes You/

Dana Benedicta says:

Mystics are saying that God is not showing His Face to some of us just for fun. With such meeting comes also asking, vocation : to bring His children to His heart: there, where they came from, and belong. In our world is not easy to talk directly about God, but death seems to be a good occasion, as it “touches” all the population: You are not only talking about the doors of death and experience: You also point something so important as eternal NOW in our daily life:”the Kingdom of God IS in You”

Barbara Whitfield says:

Dear Scott,

I just participated in a study that may answer your question. We even got published in a Psychiatric Journal on this new way that I believe God is talking to us — or as I experienced God as a supernatural intelligence (no old man) that felt like a loving energy. There is a book out on this called “Signs” by Robert Perry. Also there is a website. These are very complex synchronicities called CMPEs. Conjunctions of Meaningfully Parallel Events.

Barbara Whitfield says:

Dear Dana, Thank you for sharing this with your blog! And I hope everyone checks out my website which links to my blog. This wonderful tool called the Internet is linking all of our hearts and minds so we can feel the Oneness here in this reality!
Love to you My Cyber Friend!

Dana Benedicta says:

I shared this video on my blogg which is dedicated to arts, arts of common life. I hope You don´t mind: I hope to see You in Heaven

Dana Benedicta says:

Of course You have a mission. You are a preacher of Love.

Dana Benedicta says:

May God keep You blessed now and always. What a”compact” lesson of theology put in language of heart!

Dana Benedicta says:

Barbara.Dear Barbara

Scott Macfie says:

Hope my question makes sense, I get free will, and if it IS all a test (and love is key, etc), but why then, would ANYTHING be shared with NDE’rs, defeating the whole purpose of “non-interference” of sorts, with daily human lives. I believe NDE stories (like yours), no doubt…but why the great mystery of life then? If it is to be shared with 10 year old kids, 50 year old drug overdosers…why Doesn’t a giant angel appear to the Hitlers of the world?

Scott Macfie says:

Part 3: (Question): It’s as if it IS a “test” of sorts, yet God, angels, beings of the other “dimension” KNOW folks like you are going to come back and reveal, at least in part, the great “mystery” (like Dean Braxton)..they seem EAGER for you to share…then WHY DON’T we have more supernatural “interference” here on earth in this realm…if they (God, angels, beings) are going to do it anyhow, with NDE’rs…in other words, they know the secret is OUT with y’all…why must it remain a mystery?

Scott Macfie says:

Part 2 (Question):… those who visit the other side and meet, Jesus, God, angels, BEINGS, etc, are privy to information about the other side, about life (love, etc), and those beings (God, etc), KNOW those NDE’rs are going back (often telling them to share). So they KNOW the NDE’r is going back. Then why don’t we (“normal people” so to speak, those to whom life is a mystery, absent of NDEs, 100 percent certainty of God, etc), ever get to experience these things on THIS side?…

Scott Macfie says:

Hi Barbara, Thanks so much for your experience. I’d like to ask a somewhat philosophical question I have never once heard anyone ask an NDE’r. Grant that we (who have not had NDEs), live as humans in a regular world, absent of supernatural experiences, where life is a mystery…

wuzzntme says:

ohhh someone’s been reading Eckhart Tolle!!!!

Elizabeth stocco says:

Awesome I so believe xxx thank you xxxx

Barbara Whitfield says:

Continued–A Big Dream. see my book Spiritual Awakenings: Insights from the near-death experience and other doorways to our Soul. Big dreams can be just as profound and have. Just as long lasting positive after effects.

Barbara Whitfield says:

Hi ccacordo, I list about 15 different triggers for a spiritual experience and one of them is whar we called in the research “

ccaccord07 says:

this is wonderful, I wonder if Barbara actually listens to accounts of spiritual awakenings provoked by dreams? Because I have had one of them.

Angelica L says:

Maybe, because you were an atheist; you were not allowed to see anything or anyone. But if you had really died that day and not allowed to return here you would not have been able to enter into Heaven.The Bible clearly tells us: “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved but if we do not believe in the only begotten son, Jesus Christ, we are condemned. You were sent back to get your life right with God.

Angelica L says:

You make it sound like we go into nothingness, which is not true. Jesus said: ” I go to prepare a place for you, that where I am there you will be also.” If He went to prepare a place, I don’t think He meant a place of nothingness; it is my hope that it is a literal place.

Barbara Whitfield says:

There were some researchers that questioned just like you and experimented with DMT and Ketamine. I was privy to their experiences and then looked for the after effects — did they change in any way? Did their beliefs shift like an NDEr? Did materialism become less important and altruism matter more? Did fear of dying drop? None of the after effects that NDErs demonstrate (and that includes other triggers for these experiences — what we call an STE — Spiritually transformative Experience.)

Having trouble with my iPad and will answer you onTuesday.

Afraidmaker1 says:

Ok..dont get me wrong, I am a fan of NDE’s..I am no totally materialistic thinking man although Im studying pharmacy..the way all the people who have had a NDE talk about their experiences really impressed me..there was a time when I was nearly absolutely sure that there is a life after death..but when I heard of DMT I wasnt so sure anymore…
so what makes you believe DMT and Ketamine couldnt “come close”?
(b.t.w. I have never talked to someone who had a NDE so this is very interesting to me
