Near Death Experiencers

Show Archive
Date: Monday - December 17, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: P. M. H. Atwater, Jim Berkland

Near-Death Experience researcher for over 30 years, P.M.H. Atwater shared her explanation for NDEs, and discussed case studies and personal experiences. She reported that as many as 4 to 5% of the population may undergo an NDE-- a consciousness apart from the body, that occurs after a person is clinically dead for a period of time. According to her research, experiencers have told her "always there's life," indicating that the notion of a before and afterlife is misleading.

Atwater has studied NDEs of children, and interestingly, she noted that many kids jump in intelligence after such experiences, sometimes scoring genius levels on IQ tests. She spoke of her own NDEs-- three separate episodes. In the first occurrence which took place in 1977, she said she could see people's thoughts in the air as a definite substance. In a later NDE, she described traveling to a realm of "incredible brightness" and witnessing creation.

Negative or dark NDEs are not uncommon, with reports including empty voids, severe storms, spinning vortexes and torture chambers. Atwood has concluded that the Other Side has a variety of open-ended layers, some dense and dark, others light and friendly. Where a person ends up in an NDE could reflect their frequency of vibration, and how they resonate, she said.

Quake Update

First hour guest, geologist Jim Berkland reacted to a report that Israel could be due for a major earthquake, calling the prediction overly vague. He also discussed animal and human sensitivities that have served as quake warnings.
