Since the dawn of our own existence man has searched for proof there is life after death. Ancient philosophers, pagans and Christians all lean towards the view that our soul separates from our bodies when we die.
Recently a Harvard-educated neurosurgeon claims he has stumbled upon some new scientific proof of life after death through his own illness. Let’s take a look at his story…
Dr. Eben Alexander
Neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander was not a believer in the afterlife – in fact some might even have tarred him as a skeptic. An incident brought about by his own ill health gave him proof there is life after death and now he is a firm believer in Heaven.
Back in 2008 Dr. Alexander fell into a deep coma that lasted a whole week. What happened to him in that week changed his views on mortality forever.
He was a trained neurosurgeon so he did not believe in any near death experience claims or the afterlife. He grew up in a scientific world due to the fact his father was also a neurosurgeon – there was no room for talk on unknown phenomenon.
Due to his profession he understood what happened to the brain after someone had died. These scientific explanations led him to believe that near death experiences were nothing more than chemical reactions.
Proof There is Life After Death
Alexander’s new scientific proof of life after death came about when his brain was inactivated during the seven week coma. The experience was so profound he is convinced there is something waiting on the other side of life.
He had awoken one morning to a severe headache and within hours his entire cortex ( the part of the brain that controls thought and emotion ) had stopped working.
He was booked into the Lynchburg General Hospital in Virginia where doctors came to the conclusion that he had contracted some a rare form of meningitis.
There was not much hope for Alexander ever coming out of this illness in one piece. If he did break out of the coma he would probably of been in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.
On the morning of his seventh day of being in the deep coma he suddenly regained consciousness with an amazing story to tell…
The Other Side
Dr. Alexander claims to have visited heaven when deep in his coma state. When he was in heaven he remembers meeting a beautiful blue-eyed woman in a “place of clouds, big fluffy pink-white ones” and “shimmering beings”.
These beings were not like anything he had encountered before and seemed to be very advanced – he now refers to them as Higher Forms.
He went on to explain that there was a loud chanting sound from above but he was unsure whether these winged Higher Forms were the cause of it. Everything was confusing due to the fact that seeing and hearing were not separate in this place.
He could actually hear the strange bodies of the Higher Forms and see the noises they were producing!
Dr. Alexander is well aware that his story sounds near enough delusional and not everyone will believe his claims:
As you can see from his remarks above, Dr. Eben Alexander believes that there needs to be more effort put into the search for new scientific proof of life after death. We tend to agree…
