There are many aspects of NDEs that are wonderful to the point of our getting a glimpse of what lies beyond the apparent. Some of them take us to the region of amazement because the rational mind has no explanation to the developments following the experience. One such is the fact that the experiencer gets cured of the serious medical condition under which he or she gets the NDE.
In most cases of NDE, the person first has an out of body experience and feels completely relieved from the suffering and pain due to the bad shape the body is in. Subsequently, they contact the Divine Light or a deceased relative. In some cases, the person is told that if he (or she) chose to return, he would be cured of the damage to the body due to an accident or illness, no matter how bad it is, and he would have a healthy life. Such people amaze the doctors and the relatives by the incredible recovery they make. The reader is directed to nderf.org for the full details of the first example given here.
A recent case study: Anita Moorjani, A Sindhi woman from India, was born in Singapore but the family moved to Hong Kong early in her childhood. She was diagnosed in April 2002 with cancer of a virulent type and after nearly 4 years of battling the disease, she was taken to a local hospital where her family was told that she had less than 36 hours to live. Her remarkable NDE and miraculous recovery from cancer has created enormous interest on an international scale. The following is an excerpt from her account through an interview with NDERF.
“This state caused a huge internal consciousness shift within me. It felt as if I had penetrated into a reality beyond my “mind” and that, living in the mind was living in the “illusion”. There was a feeling of being connected to the entire universe- becoming one with everyone and everything. I was also flooded in an all- encompassing, unconditionally loving energy - an energy that does not discriminate or judge. It was in this very awake state that I made the decision to come back into life. Just the fact that I was presented with the choice and that I had made the decision, made it real. And as soon as I made the decision, every single cell in my body responded to that decision, and I healed almost immediately.
“The doctors continued to take tests, but could not find anything. My higher self/soul/spirit/connection to all that is, whatever you want to call it, that part of me had decided to continue to live through this body, and nothing in this physical 3D world could affect that decision.
“Within four days of my returning to the body, about 70% of the tumors had gone, they couldn’t even find them to the touch. I was still very, very weak and over the following days they started to do the biopsies, to take the scans and they couldn’t find a trace of cancer. They didn’t know what to make of it and said that it was more than a miracle.”
Three other studies are reported by PMH Atwater, a renowned researcher in this field. A young man diagnosed with advanced AIDS had a sudden drop in his HIV readings after his NDE. One year later, he was totally normal. The brain tumor that “killed” Mellon-Thomas Benedict was absent from brain scans taken shortly after he revived – and never reappeared. Muriel Kelly’s childhood NDE healed the damage done to her heart by rheumatic fever.
