When he awoke from a coma doctor revealed the secret of "life after death" — there is a "new world" and the higher beings
Dr. Eben Alexander, long taught at Harvard and who had to earn a reputation as an excellent neurosurgeon, as long as he could remember, considered himself a Christian, but never believed in the existence of the afterlife, and even sympathized with those who believed that somewhere out there is a God who loves us unconditionally.
"As a neurosurgeon, I did not believe in the phenomenon of" out of body experience. " I grew up in the scientific community, I am the son of a neurosurgeon. Having followed the path of his father, I became an academician and a neurosurgeon, he taught at Harvard Medical School and other universities. I understand that it happens to the brain when people are on the verge of death, so I have always believed that there is a reasonable scientific explanation for travel outside the body, which describe the people who miraculously escaped death "- he shared with Newsweek.
But everything changed after the fall of man in 2008 he went into a coma. It was then, when Alexander the week was on the brink of life and death, and his cerebral cortex of the brain responsible for thoughts and emotions, has ceased to function, he, in his own words, he made a journey to the next world and, in particular, to paradise.
"In accordance with the present medical understanding of the brain and the mind to imagine that I was in a coma at least in a limited consciousness, and not something that is very bright and committed whole journey, it is simply impossible — said the neurosurgeon. — There is no scientific explanation, that despite the fact that the body was in a coma, and the bark of my brain has turned off, the brain itself continued to work and, in fact, went to the other, much larger universe — the measurement of whose existence I had never suspected " .
The doctor said that in general, the mystical dimension, which he visited, like many descriptions of people who have experienced clinical death or other border states. According to him, it is literally a new world in which we are much more than just our bodies and our brains, and where death — it's not the end of conscious existence, but only a part of the endless journey.
Able to describe the doctor and looks like this wonderful world. He said his journey began when he was floating somewhere in the clouds, and soon saw a "transparent, shimmering creatures flying through the sky and leaving behind a long, similar to the line of footprints."
In addition, these creatures are published amazing sounds like a beautiful song, and it seemed to the man, so they expressed joy and grace overflowed them. However, neither the birds nor the angels Alexander decided not to compare them — they were too dissimilar to anything existing on our planet. It was the creation of some higher, he said.
One of these creatures — an unknown young woman — to join him and became his guide through the mysterious universe. At the same exterior of his beautiful companion Alexander remembered in detail — she had dark blue eyes, golden-brown hair in braids, and high cheekbones. Women's clothes were simple but beautiful and vibrant — pale blue, blue and peach.
With her, as with other creatures similar to it, the neurosurgeon told without words — messages passed through it and were like the wind. He even brought one of his speeches, telling him mystical woman. "You love and cherish you forever. You have nothing to fear. There is nothing that you can do wrong — she said. — We will show you many things here. But in the end you will return back. "
Gradually, she led the doctor to "a huge void, where it was completely dark, but felt infinity, and it was very nice." Now Alexander believes that this emptiness was the home of God.
Soon, a man came to. Now, however, experienced the journey to the afterlife, he is in no hurry to share their experience with colleagues, but finds solace in the church. Also, a man wrote the book "Journey of a neurosurgeon in the afterlife", which should see the light at the end of October.
"I'm still a doctor, and still remain a man of science — sums up Alexander. — But on a deeper level, I am very different from the person who was before, because I saw a picture of this new reality. "
