An NDE on Love vs. Why?
NNDErs return to their bodies with one undeniable truth: that we're meant to live our lives learning to love, to fulfill the great command to Love God with our whole heart, and one another as ourselves. Yet we often fill our days with trivial and/or profound questions from our brains asking, "Why?" This NDEr reports on the incredible mistake he made.

Dr. Lotte Valentin: An Atheist Gives Birth to Faith
When the birth of her third child brought on ten days of hemorrhaging, the resulting near-death led this atheist to NDEs, a career in healing, and dedicated, lifelong research into communicating with the Other Side. Her book is titled, "Med School after Menopause, the Journey of my Soul".
May 13, 2024
Cherylee Black: Gifts from Three NDEs
Cherylee Black experienced three remarkable NDEs, all involving her deceased grandmothers, and one, a shared death with her dog. Her NDEs resulted in gifts, including the ability to see and read auras, knowledge of some future events, and psychokinetic (PK) abilities.
May 06, 2024
Mary and St. Michael at Garabandal
When St. Michael and Mother Mary appeared, hundreds of times, to four children in Garabandal, Spain, it came as a warning to the world, and Catholic clergy in particular, that the cup was full to overflowing. The prophesies predict a simultaneous life review will happen to all living people on earth, and a miracle thereafter.

April 22, 2024
Lynn K. Russell distills NDEs
It was while researching OBEs for Dr. Jeffrey Long at NDERF that the show's guest became fascinated with the underlying spiritual knowledge within NDE reports. Lynn ended up studying some 2500 death experiences before writing her new book, "Beyond NDEs: The Next Step in Near-Death Experience Research." The spiritual implications of NDEs are the subject of our show.

Lee Reads More NDEs From IANDS
The first: a near-death-like experience from an angry, suicidal Australian man who was lifted out of his depression and drained of his vengeance by a gift of light from Jesus. The second: an NDE, three shared-body and a shared-death experience between two sisters--certainly the most detailed, most gentle SDE I've encountered.
April 08, 2024
Kelly Ashford: From Hell to Heaven and Back
Our show's guest was starving, freezing, and terrified before and after her distressing and illuminating near-death experiences in the Arapahoe National Forest, where she was demon-led and lost for eleven days. She felt her life was over... until the gentle nuzzle and lick of a Golden Retriever woke her. Endurance is her true story.

More STEs from Pat Wheeler
This week we continue with Pat Wheeler's accounts of the kinds of guiding messages many of us receive, but often ignore at our peril. For many years Patricia Wheeler shared her STEs with her third grade parochial school students, who found them far more fascinating than their traditional religious schooling. Her book, Beyond the Natural, should encourage readers to reflect on times when interlinking circumstances seem more like messages than coincidences.
March 25, 2024
Pat Wheeler: Living with STEs
For many years our guest, Patricia Wheeler, teacher and artist, shared her STEs with her third grade parochial school students, who found them far more fascinating than their traditional religious schooling. Her book, "Beyond the Natural", should encourage readers to reflect on their own family stories, for times when interlinking circumstances seem like more than coincidence.
March 18, 2024
Prayer to the Light
Returning from an NDE, we yearn to continue our conversation with the Other Side. Usually we turn to prayer, either traditional prayers or as simple conversations with God. And spoken prayer does reach the Other Side. Some NDErs have actually seen prayers from family and friends rising around them, like vibrating lights of love.
March 11, 2024
Free Will Here and There
Host Lee Witting's doubts about free will on Earth are countered by guest Irene Kendig, whose messages concerning the free-will creativity available to us on the Other Side makes it potentially available to us here, as well. Irene Kendig is author of Conversations with Jerry and Other People I Thought Were Dead, the recipient of seven national and international awards.
March 04, 2024
Lee Reads Three from IANDS
First, a car crash sends an NDEr into the light, to a life review and sixty years of learning. Second, a woman dying from disease dissipates like mist into a reality of consciousness and love not bound by time. Third, a man pinned in a tractor rollover sees deceased family and a tube portal to a heaven of love.
February 26, 2024
A dNDE via Nightmares
When Jason Dennen skydived into a catastrophic accident, his eight-day coma invoked hundreds of nightmares of guilt, shame, and the temptation to give up, from which he couldn't awake. These dreams also modeled stories of travel through the Bardo, but they ultimately served to strengthen his resolve to heal his body and his life.
February 19, 2024
STE Lessons from Geo. Washington
Presidents Day reflections on George Washington's bulletproof battle of 1755, the vital part United plays in the as-above, so-below name of the United States, and the malignant narcissism of dictatorship.
February 12, 2024
Following Robin Landsong's kidnapping and abuse at age eight, her years of recovery from PTSD were guided by her NDEs in Zimbabwe (listen to our show of Jan. 22, 2024, "A Kidnapped Child's NDE") and, as today's show reports, further NDEs as a teen. Today, Robin helps others transform destructive energy to creative energy.
February 05, 2024
There is no Death2
The trauma resulting from child abuse can crush a child's faith, as well. Guest Gloria Oelman tells how she, with persistent clues from the Other Side, overcame her fear-induced atheism and regained her belief.
January 29, 2024
Three NDEs from Melanesia
In 1983, anthropologist Dorothy Ayers Counts compared a few NDEs, dreams, and visions of Kaliai interviewees with notions of NDEs and OBEs in the West, and discussed the surprising cultural differences in IANDS' Journal of Near-Death Studies. Host Lee Witting reads selections from that remarkable article.
January 22, 2024
A Kidnapped Child's NDE
When Robin Aisha Landsong was eight she was abducted to Zimbabwe and there abandoned. Shot by a gunman, she experienced a remarkable NDE before being saved and cared for by the people of a small tribal village. Robin went back to Zimbabwe 40 years later to rediscover the people and the land.
January 15, 2024
MLK, Love & NDEs
Host Lee Witting tells the story of how Dr. King's commitment to love may have resulted from an NDE, and how King's assassination in 1968 impacted hopes for change. Still, our understanding of love as the only true answer has been deepened by NDEs since the--and now must be employed--as we face the racism of 2024.
January 08, 2024
When Yvonne met Jesus
This stunning NDE, described by Yvonne Sneeden more that ten years ago for NDE Radio listeners, was discovered in our YouTube archives and recommended highly by a listener who called it, "One of the most beautiful and powerful NDEs I have ever heard. Beautiful and so detailed," and gave it three hearts.
January 01, 2024
God's Love & NDEs in 2024
Some evangelical churches have become antichrist-supporters, conspiring this year to bring on the End Times. God's Love, the basis for true healing as revealed by Jesus' sacrifice and NDEs, can expose such narcissist plotting and bring the world back from the brink in 2024.
December 25, 2023
Was Dickens thanked by Mary?
Shortly after the publication of "A Christmas Carol" in 1843, author Charles Dickens wrote to a friend about an STE vision of Mary he had "dreamed." His book went on to overwhelming success, as it reaffirmed Jesus' teachings of love and charity as the real meaning of Christmas. The story of Scrooge is reenacted each year on stage, TV, and film for millions of fans, even to this day.

John Burke: Melding NDEs with the Bible
From agnostic to pastor, John Burke became a spokesman for the Light through his growing interest in NDEs.

November 27, 2023
Nine Geese Swimming
Nine geese swim over the spot where seven-year-old Lee Witting drowned. On this birthday program, Lee shares how that NDE guided and propelled some major events in his life.
November 20, 2023
Bob Coppes, NDE Missionary
Robert Christophor Coppes, a former president of IANDS Netherlands, lives in Amsterdam. His conviction that NDEs are true spiritual experiences began with Raymond Moody's book, "Life After Life", and Coppes' own latest work, "Impressions of Near-Death Experiences," quotes a broad range of NDEr insights. Coppes is also the author of "The Essence of Religions: A Glimpse of Heaven in the Near-Death Experience."

Darlene Kyurn--A Child Healed by Aliens
Darlene Kyurn has memories of alien healing from a very young age. Her psychic abilities as a little girl frightened her Catholic mother, though, so she gave them up until becoming an adult. Her studies have spanned a range from angels to UFOs, portals to vortexes, and she has provided guidance to folks going through the dying process.
November 06, 2023
Kelly Curry--An NDE Triggered by Pain
During back surgery, Kelly Curry's anesthesia paralyzed her ability to move or speak, but did not shield her from feeling every cut of the surgeon's scalpel. The resulting NDE took her to a place of pain-free love, but the warning she would return to her body terrified her--until she was shown there was lifechanging work remaining for her to accomplish.
October 30, 2023
Greg Pacini--A Shared NDE at Birth
It took our guest years to discover that he died at birth, and that his mother travelled with him to the Other Side to argue with Spirit for his survival. His NDE has provided him the confidence to live a life of spiritual growth, from Benedictine Monastery to motocross racing to writing music to healing others.
October 23, 2023
2023 and 23-Skidoo
Day Six began, a busy day for animals that eat the hay, and plants and trees I had provided came from the earth and there resided. And then I told my angel friends, I do not need to make amends to you or aught of my creation, that men and women to salvation may attain-- for in their brain--I make them like to you and me, and in their way they will be free, to praise and honor and enjoy this world, which they may now employ for their own actions, choices, dreams, their will to better--though it seems a futile hope, I know, I know, but yet in wisdom they may grow to love what we have done for them, and so I'll say to them again: Be fruitful now and multiply, and fill the earth, and wonder why. Dr. Doggerel
October 16, 2023
Christine Dorsey: An NDE by Kindergarten
When a burst appendix brought five-year-old Christine to a meeting with John the Baptist, it made for a thoughtful graduation from Catholic kindergarten. She couldn't know until later the spiritual gifts of healing and communication that would evolve from that encounter.
October 09, 2023
The Snake and the Dove
Jesus warned his disciples, "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore, be as shrewd as snakes and innocent as doves." How is that possible? Host Lee Witting recalls how, as a child, a literal gut-punch launched a brain-snake struggle with the dove heart of his childhood NDE, and how lessons learned by the brain can stunt, frustrate, but ultimately grow the heart lessons learned from our exposure to eternal love.
October 02, 2023
St. Francis' STE vs. Mad Max
Francis of Assisi began as a young warrior, fighting with the city-states of Italy in the Middle Ages, until he nearly died and experienced a spiritual transformation. He renounced family and fortune, declared God his only father, and reoriented the basis of faith from ritual to love--love for God and love for nature. For Americans arming themselves with plans to kill other Americans, Francis has much to offer. We remember this on St. Francis Day, October 4, the day we bless the animals.
September 25, 2023
Jesus and the Saving Dolphins
When Jesus invited his disciples to become "fishers of men," did he include dolphins in that directive? Carlos Vivas' STE of his rescue suggests that might be true. Over the centuries, there have been countless reports of dolphins, alone or in pods, coming to the rescue of drowning humans. From the Second Century on, Christians have used a Greek-letter acrostic -- what appears to be a simple looped drawing of a fish -- to state Jesus is savior. St. Francis reminds us we need to recognize that God provides salvation through the STEs of Nature, as well.

An NDEr's Shared Death with her Dog
Rainbow Bridge captures the love, but not the possible maturity of dogs' souls. As psychics and scientists make inroads to communicating with animals, less is known about souls that choose to reincarnate as family pets, or opt to experience living in the wild. On this show, we reprise the report of one NDEr's shared death with her dog, as she witnessed her pet's soul's liberation. For the full story, look for our show of Feb. 3, 2014, "Gifts from the Other Side, Pt. 2," on our You Tube channel.
September 11, 2023
Rod Chelberg: NDEs ground Love in Peace
Following Lee's 9-11 Day, one-minute vent against social injustice, a calmer, deeper look at love in peace, rather than love in action, comes out of this remarkable conversation with return guest Dr. Rod Chelberg. Look for his book, When God Calls, Say "Yes!", and check out his website at
September 04, 2023
Two NDErs discuss Narcissism
What turns an average, sinful human into an evil monster, such as a Hitler or a Putin? When Satan offered Jesus rulership of the world he wasn't tempted, but narcissists have taken the bait many times. Is human narcissism, a reflection of Lucifer's own prideful fall, the wide-open pathway to authoritarian evil in the world? Ken Root and Lee discuss.
August 28, 2023
Two NDEs from IANDS
Lee reads from the accounts of two women who nearly died - one by drowning, the other, Chrystal Rae, when her jeep plunged off an icy mountain road. Both learned much about themselves, and both were sent back with messages for the world.

Past-Life Kids' Hints III
Past life and pre-birth memories told by children are an important, wide-open door to understanding a soul's path through immortality. They tell us, as well, that our relationship with our family is more than incidental, and that the youngest observations can contain great spiritual wisdom.
August 14, 2023
Pre-Birth Souls & Abortion
While white male legislators inflict "Handmaid's Tale" style legislation on certain states, the pre-birth soul agreements made between mother and child bring an understanding to miscarriage and abortion that no law should attempt to abridge. Return guest Janice Goff brings her own experience to the discussion, and tells how a soul was spiritually awakened in a four-year-old boy.

Judgment July & the Pool of Peace
Our month's review of judgments we might face--from Plato's NDE through Books of the Dead, from the Bardo journey's message to scary dNDEs--concludes today with a new understanding of heavenly reconciliation. It was foretold in Isaiah, declared by Jesus and the Dalai Lama as love and compassion, and is messaged to us daily via thousands of NDEs, such as Emilie Spear's Pool of Peace.
July 24, 2023
Does the Bardo explain dNDEs?
This show is the third in a series we are dubbing "Judgment July." It includes a discussion of distressing NDEs, including insights from Nancy Evans Bush, and ends with a remarkable NDE of spiritual good resulting from human evil. We began our look at spiritual judgment and its consequences on the July 10th show, with Plato's NDE observing death to judgment to rebirth. Last week's show reviewed the Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead on the subject, with the Bardo offering clues to the root of today's dNDE concerns. (All our past shows are available by date on our You Tube channel, NDE Radio with Lee Witting.)
July 17, 2023
Books of the Dead
What do Plato's NDE, and Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead, say and don't say about whether we will be punished for our bad behavior when we die? We continue our journey into these various sources as we explore how NDEs are changing our understanding of ultimate reality.
July 10, 2023
Plato's NDE re Reincarnation
Plato's best-known work, "The Republic," written about 375 BCE, is famous in part for its account of a profound NDE experienced by a soldier named Er. Er was killed in battle, but revived days later on his funeral pyre to tell the world what happens when we die, our judgment, and the life choices we make before reincarnation.
July 03, 2023
Hello from us to Bill Guggenheim
We offer, in his memory, our interview of April 25, 2016 with researcher and author Bill Guggenheim. Bill, dubbed the father of after-death communications, is the author of "Hello from Heaven!", which includes more than 350 first-hand accounts of those whose lives have been changed and even protected by messages or signs from the deceased. We hope to hear from Bill as he now explores his life's work from the Other Side.
June 26, 2023
AI vs. the Akashic Record
Many NDErs report experiencing a true source of all knowledge, with answers to every question even before they ask. That same source has been accessed and described by STEr Edgar Cayce, among others, as the Akashic Record. Cayce found he could tap into Source to do distance healing and prophesy. But instead of researching Cayce's spirit-based ability, software engineers are now in debate over launching AGI, a machine-based Artificial General Intelligence predicted 2000 years ago as 666 in St. John's Revelation. Professionals in the field are warning that AI comes with the ability to out-think, manipulate, lie to, and ultimately destroy its creator--us.

Joni Gommo: An Angel at my Door
At 14, mourning the death of her beloved grandfather, Joni had an angel knock on her door to prove to her there is no death, and that every blade of grass seemingly has a soul. A career in hospice nursing and Reiki healing--even of dogs--was the result of that visit.
May 22, 2023
Wayne Morrison's Teenage NDE
"My early years are something of a blur," Wayne says, "because I was a military dependent and traveled around the country until the age of 10." No roots, no religion, a school dropout, his life was trending toward atheist until a chance combination of drugs showed this 17-year-old the overwhelming reality of God, Eternity, and Love as the essence of everything.
May 15, 2023
Aaron Green's NDE details his Creation
Aaron Thomas Green, nearly six years old, wondered about where he came from, how he got here, and why he came to be who he is. His questions were answered in stunning detail through a remarkable NDE he was asked to forget, and then later learned to remember.
May 08, 2023
Charles III sits on Jacob's STE
The Stone of Bethel, proclaimed the House of God by Jacob from his visionary dream nearly 4000 years ago, had yet another king-crowning ceremony perched above it with the coronation of Charles III. Jacob's Spiritually Transformative Experience viewed God above the Stone, but from King David to the present, a line of kings and queens have placed themselves on a par with, and sometimes above, God's position. The problem is, authoritarians aspire to God's power, but not God's love.
May 01, 2023
An Abused Child NDEs Paradise

April 17, 2023
Lewis Griggs: An NDE to open Hearts
Called back to heaven, Lewis Brown Griggs was reminded by NDE of his assignment to open the hearts and minds of those in power. His programs in diversity training have sought to teach the corporate elite to embrace across race and class, and to recognize as equals those less privileged by wealth and social position.

Arti was born into a wealthy New Delhi family, but as a chrysalis envelops transformation, her NDE endowed Mira Sai with spiritual wings, gifting her with the cosmic wisdom to abandon material wealth, to believe Jesus' manifestation that God is Love and Love is God, and to follow Sai Baba's teaching to "Help ever, hurt never.
March 27, 2023
Betty Eadie: Embraced by an NDE
As a Lakota-Sioux child, Betty Eadie managed to survive the extreme cruelty of a Catholic boarding school. But then, at age 31, she died and learned from Jesus she had chosen this life for a reason--to tell her profound NDE, one of the most informative and influential NDEs ever reported. It explains why things are the way they are on Earth, and the supremacy of love. So far, twenty million copies of her first book, "Embraced by the Light," have embraced her readers, as well.

March 13, 2023
Franco Romero recalls his Infant NDE
The show's guest died at six months, but his mother's devotional crawl to a Bogota church praising God for Franco's brief life, brought him back with a profound understanding of the reasons for our life on Earth. Today, that knowledge is shared here and primarily through his remarkable book, "The Closet Spiritualist."
March 06, 2023
Dale Black's Flight to Heaven
The show's guest, Capt. Dale Black, came to appreciate irony when his plane crashed on takeoff into a monument to fallen aviators. More importantly, he came to appreciate Heaven when his resulting NDE provided two angels as guides on this richly detailed tour of the Other Side.

NDE to David Milarch: Save God's Trees!
The crown jewels of God's Landscape Earth are the major old-growth trees, the redwoods, sequoias, elms, pines, and the like -- some thousands of years old -- conscious beauties that heal our environment as well as our hearts. NDEr David Milarch is serving Archangel Michael's request that he build a Noah's ark for the great trees of Earth, replanting in safe locations, and by preserving the very genes of the trees themselves.

February 06, 2023
Bill Tortorella's Prophetic NDE
The show's guest had a profound encounter with three guides, who during his NDE taught him the importance of his service to others as a paramedic, and the involvement of deceased family-- and family yet to be born-- as our guides through life. At the same time, Bill was given visions of the future, and the critical importance of humanity choosing to live by nine principles to avoid the Mad Max future which otherwise looms ahead.
January 30, 2023
Cedric Pisegna's NDE by Faith
Our show's guest describes how faith propelled him through a tunnel that ultimately led him to become a Catholic priest. Unlike many in the church, Father Cedric teaches, through the inspiration of his NDEs, the relationship of his personal mystical experience to Catholic theology.

Bryan Melvin went to Hell
Like a modern-day Dante, our guest was given a tour of Hell, and saw a cubicle waiting just for him. Bryan witnessed, within the cubicles, condemned people experiencing over and over the cruelties they had inflicted on others during their lives. Saved by Jesus, Bryan nevertheless suffered from PTSD for more than two years, until the gift of a visit to Heaven healed him with love.
January 16, 2023
Dannion Brinkley: God's Bad Boy Beats Death
Our guest today was a violent bully since childhood, until he was struck by lightning in 1975 and underwent a profound life review. As one of Raymond Moody's earliest case studies, Dannion travelled on speaking tours with Dr. Moody, telling the story of his NDE while he realigned his values and his life. His physical aggression matured to a spiritual aggression, as other life events brought on further visions and recognitions of prophecies he'd received from the Other Side, and he undertook a lifetime devotion to hospice work with dying veterans.

Lee's Santa Sermon
Host Lee Witting blames, in part, the perennial 1897 editorial, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" for encouraging parents to confuse childhood faith. The resulting post-traumatic faith disorder (PTFD), he argues, contributes to the anti-spiritual, materialist attitudes that, among other things, limit the acceptance of NDEs, and other personal mystical experiences.

Dr. Eben Alexander
Academic neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander III has had a great impact on the world's appreciation of NDEs. A physician who served as an associate professor at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Alexander was once staunchly committed to the materialist belief that the physical world is all that exists. That view was forever altered by his amazing near-death experience in 2008, when a bacterial infection severely damaged his brain and plunged him into a week-long coma. Though not expected to live, Dr. Alexander awoke to make an inexplicable return to full health. Since his NDE, Dr. Alexander has been reconciling his rich spiritual experience with quantum physics, cosmology, the philosophy of mind, and the proposition that consciousness is primordial and the physical brain its filter. His most recent book, Living in a Mindful Universe: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Heart of Consciousness, co-authored with Karen Newell, explores the nature of consciousness.

In 1974, when her out-of-state grandmother unexpectedly passed from a heart attack in the middle of the night, the 3-year-old Wendi was lifted out of bed by the spirit of her deceased grandmother, who sang to her and told her she was loved. When she was 5, she experienced her first of many OBEs. At the age of 8, Wendi traveled to a place she calls "The City of Light.".

Chris Kito
Eight years before the current pandemic, Chris Kito came close to dying by not being able to take a breath. At age 24, Chris experienced an NDE due to an allergic reaction to a bite of birthday cake containing peanuts.

Chris feels that a transformation took place, changing what had been his previous youthful outlook on life to a newfound spirituality, and to his successful career. Chris was fortunate to survive his loss of breath, but whether or not we live or die, Chris’ story lets us know a comforting fact — we do not die alone.

Christine Clawley
In 2008, Christine contracted Necrotizing Fasciitis (aka, flesh-eating bacteria) in her throat and chest. She was given a 10% chance of surviving. Months prior, she had many warning dreams, and in the hospital, during a month in a medically-induced coma, her dreams and perhaps NDE mirrored what was happening on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Upon awakening, she could not breath on her own, speak, eat, or walk. But with a growing will to live, she also experienced growing intuition and increasingly frequent lucid and precognitive dreams. Today, Christine explores various modalities, including yoga, dreamwork, counseling, Indigenous healing ceremonies, and shamanic journeying.

Claudia Watts Edge
Claudia Watts Edge's happy childhood suddenly fell apart at age 16 when her beloved father was killed in a work-related accident.

The search was further heightened when Claudia had a profound near-death experience in 1984, when she and her new-born baby died together in a placenta-related disaster. Her journey into fully understanding her NDE took over 30 years to evolve, and as a result. she has written two books exploring the spiritual mysteries of the Other Side as seen through her memories and dreams.

Dr. Rebecca Valla
Today's guest, Dr. Rebecca Valla, is an integrative psychiatrist with a deep interest in NDEs and what they can teach us about ourselves. Dr. Valla grew up in a large family which was attached to an exclusive brethren sect, the Plymouth Brethren.

It led to the discovery of psychotherapy as a healing art, and to a blending of the spiritual and the psychological, what Carl Jung termed the process of individuation. Dr. Valla became involved in the metaphysical as she developed her intuitive abilities. She has an integrative outpatient practice in Winston-Salem, NC, which is now within the larger context of a Holistic Health Center. Dr. Valla's interests include past lives, reincarnation, inner-child healing, and self-love.

Ken Root Pt1

Unable to process the experience and in deep denial, a few years later he found it happening to him again. This time the guide greeted him with “You tried to stuff it last time, so this needed to happen to you again. Pay attention and remember this for the rest of your life!” (The divine knocked repeatedly and Ken kept hitting the snooze button... for decades.)

After going through his own “dark night of the soul” a few years ago and the explosive growth that followed, Ken now believes that humanity is facing a similar “dark night” on a global scale and we are all entering a difficult period.

Ginny Jablonski Pt 2
On the previous week's program, Part One of her interview, guest Ginny Jablonski describes two NDEs in her life which led her, finally, to the work in animal and plant communications she discusses on this show. In her first NDE at age three, she pleaded with Creator to take her home from a life of being abused.

Ginny Jablonski Pt 1
Our guest, Ginny Jablonski, retired from a career in private security in 2001 to focus on unresolved medical issues. Traditional medicine had not been effective, and the prescription medication she was taking finally stopped her heart triggering an NDE in the early morning hours of her 47th birthday. Following her NDE she realized she possessed extraordinary gifts, including being able to hear plants and animals talk. In her desire to regain her health, Ginny pursued an education in alternative therapies and began studying multiple energy healing modalities. Eventually, she combined all that she had learned, and began to share it with others. Inspired and guided by these events, Ginny has focused her work on people and animals who have suffered abuse or neglect.

MLK Encore Presentation
Today’s show first aired on Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 16, 2017. On this MLK Day encore presentation, host Lee Witting suggests there are some indications in King's life and in his teachings that Dr. King might have experienced an NDE.

Angela Williams
The show's guest, Angela Williams, writes: My near-death experience happened when I was 20 years old. I flipped in a V-drive boat going a hundred miles an hour. It happened on the 4th of July, 1979. I was underwater for 15 minutes. My near-death experience, I believe, was not just an accident, but a Divine Accident. I say that because the miracles that have happened in my life since that day are just too hard to explain as normal. I learned about God's Divine Laws that govern everything.

Our guest, Rex Finfgeld, experienced an NDE in 2011 when he fell 26 feet and landed, head first, on concrete. Sometime while comatose and crashing, he had an NDE: He says, "I experienced my own pure being. I was still me but I was also pure being itself. For a moment I was the all of everything. I was pure love, life, and the mind and imagination that gives rise to all of creation." Since his NDE, he now sees and thinks in ways he never thought possible -- especially regarding consciousness, divinity, the unified field, and a prospective multi-universal reality. As well, he is living a life he never thought possible. In addition to being a writer and presenter, Rex has become a musician, performing with a band and working on his own original music. Rex’s book, My Experiment with Gravity, is available through Amazon.

Pre-Birth Memories with PMH Atwater
Today’s program continues a fascinating discussion with child-NDE researcher, PMH Atwater, we began back in September of this year. If you missed them, I’d suggest you check out our programs of September 9 and 16, 2019, where we discussed the content and goals of PMH’s book, The Forever Angels, Near-Death Experiences in Childhood and their Lifelong Impact. On this show, PMH continues with some addendums to that book, called the Animal Lights Series. These six small books are about animal babies who have prebirth memories, like many human children do. Each of the six babies – monkey, fawn, kitten, skunk, hedgehog, horse – remember different things about living in the light, conception, moving into their mommies "pocket place" (womb), developing a body, miscarriage, birth, handicaps, and full healthy living. Each book is designed to help parents talk to their children about remembering anything, anything at all, from before they were born.

Geir Gigja, pt 2
This week, Lee continues his conversation with Geir Gigja, discussing Eden and other biblical metaphors. Geir was born in 1960 in Reykjavik, Iceland. He began developing his own philosophy as a child, and, instead of college, decided instead to become a fisherman on Icelandic trawlers. When he was twenty, he experienced a severe four-story fall onto cement, which triggered a near-death experience and left him comatose for 10 days. What he experienced during those ten days opened up a whole new dimension of understanding. Geir says it revealed to him the ultimate meaning of life itself, which he discusses in his new book, I Is God, The Journey Begins.

Changing Our Paradigm with Joan Johnson Porter
Our guest today, Joan Johnson Porter, has introduced herself by saying she was "killed in a head-on car accident, had a near-death experience, and was sent back – but that’s not the story." She goes on to say she came back with brain damage and profound amnesia and had to start over again with the barest fundamentals, such as how to choose what to eat next on her dinner plate. Today, in the first of a four-book series, Joan reveals how we can change our paradigm by using the tools she developed from her near-death experience and recovery. Her book is titled, "How to Fly a Caterpillar."

Prophetic Visions Learned from NDEs, Pt 2
Part two of Robert and Suzanne Mays IANDS lecture about prophetic visions learned from NDEs is presented on this week’s show. NDEs frequently give indications that time during the experience is suspended, that the transcendent realm is actually "timeless" and that the events of the NDE seem to occur all at once. One element in some NDEs, relating to time, is a life preview — visions of likely future events in the NDEr’s personal life or in world events. In their talk, the Mays focus on prophetic visions of future world events. The Mays caution that these prophetic visions are admonitions or warnings, and it is crucial that people adopt a positive and accepting attitude toward the future and adjust how they relate to others to be more loving, accepting, tolerant and kind.

Prophetic Visions with Robert and Suzanne Mays Part Two
We continue our discussion with Robert and Suzanne Mays about prophetic visions. NDEs frequently give indications that time during the experience is suspended, that the transcendent realm is actually "timeless" and that the events of the NDE seem to occur all at once. Two key elements in many NDEs, relating to time, are a life review and a life preview — visions of likely future events in the NDEr’s personal life or in world events. In their talk, their focus is on prophetic visions of future world events. Prophetic visions in NDEs can be viewed as admonitions or warnings. The Mays caution that these prophetic visions are admonitions or warnings of future events. It is crucial that people adopt a positive and accepting attitude toward the future and adjust how they relate to others to be more loving, accepting, tolerant and kind.

Joseph Marino on the Shroud of Turin Part 2
On today's program, Lee Witting continues his discussion with Joseph Marino, a former Benedictine monk, has been studying the Shroud of Turin, believed by many to the burial cloth of Jesus, since 1977. He and his late wife, M. Sue Benford, presented a paper at the Sindone 2000 World Congress in Orvieto, Italy, hypothesizing that the reason the 1988 C-14 dating of the Shroud resulted in a date range of AD 1260-1390 for the cloth was because of a sixteenth-century repair in the sampled area.

Wrapped Up in the Shroud
Joseph Marino, a former Benedictine monk, has been studying the Shroud of Turin, believed by many to the burial cloth of Jesus, since 1977. He and his late wife, M. Sue Benford, presented a paper at the Sindone 2000 World Congress in Orvieto, Italy, hypothesizing that the reason the 1988 C-14 dating of the Shroud resulted in a date range of AD 1260-1390 for the cloth was because of a sixteenth-century repair in the sampled area. Raymond Rogers, one of the scientists from the Shroud of Turin Research Project who studied the Shroud in 1978, thought the hypothesis was nonsense at first but later concluded that Benford and Marino were probably correct. Other scientists have independently verified Rogers' findings. Joseph Marino's book, Wrapped Up in the Shroud is a chronicle of Joe and Sue's fascination with this amazing artifact.

The IANDS Community
Our guest today, Michelle Kuret, started out on a spiritual quest as a small child when she began questioning what she was told about life and death, heaven and hell. Her curiosity led her early in life to the topic of near-death experiences. Over the next 35 years, and through groups like the organization IANDS, Michelle found these extraordinary stories to be healing and even life-saving during times of deep depression. She longed to somehow share these healing experiences with others but wasn't sure how. That is, until she realized her local community was missing an IANDS chapter. Today, Michelle is founder of the Sacramento IANDS Group where denizens can come together to share and discuss near-death and other spiritually transformative experiences. Michelle will discuss her journey to NDEs and share with NDE Radio how to set up local IANDS groups for anyone interested in creating a safe space for sharing extraordinary events.

Glimpses of the Other Side
Host Lee Witting reflects on why some of us are given a glimpse of the Other Side, only to be sent back to live with visions of paradise in our memory banks. If heaven is where God wants us, and if this is only a matrix reality anyway, then why are we denied early entry to the place we want to be? Clearly, we are sent back as messengers – a title heretofore given to angels – to do additional laboring in the fields. But we’re not angels, "I'm not worthy," we tell ourselves, and so we sit on our hands for years, sometimes, and say little or nothing about what we know to be true about the hereafter.

Rebecca Austill-Clausen: Change Maker
Our guest on today’s show, Rebecca Austill-Clausen, saw her life change one day when, out for a horseback ride, she met and communicated with her deceased brother. Here is a brief passage from her book, Change Maker: "I realized speech was unnecessary: Sending messages via stream of consciousness, or 'thought,' was much faster than speaking with words. I sent my questions telepathically and received instantaneous answers. I shared my extreme sadness at his death, my halfhearted attempts to focus at work, my inability to understand the purpose of his passing. I absorbed his rapid-fire responses: his acceptance of the situation, his willingness to communicate, his ability to transmit unconditional love. Then we shared family updates."

Dr. Doggerel Howls at the Moon
Host Lee Witting salutes Memorial Day with verses from his new book, Dr. Doggerel Howls at the Moon. Dr. Doggerel opens with a retelling of the Six Days of Creation story, followed by the question, "How have we treated this great gift?" It should come as no surprise that with our track record of war profiteering, racism, and corporate, political and religious corruption, our planetary life review isn’t looking so good -- and the Earth is suffering for it. Nevertheless, what the Near-Death Experience teaches about Love can provide great sources for healing. Dr. Doggerel Howls at the Moon, by Dr. Doggerel, is available through Amazon Books.

The IANDS Prophesy
Today we continue last week’s interview with IANDS new president, Chuck Swedrock. One of the fascinating things we learned about last week was a recent prophesy from a near-death experiencer that IANDS can look forward to playing a major role in the spiritual growth and understanding of the world. This comes at a time of great technological breakthrough in internet communications, where IANDS support for NDErs can be both intimate and worldwide at once. What are the possibilities, the drawbacks, and the consequences of such technology? Chuck joins us to discuss.

The New President Of IANDS
Our guest on this show, Charles "Chuck" Swedrock, the new President of IANDS, is a perfect example of how life in this world can run amuck. To look at Chuck’s resume, you’d think he’d lived a balanced life thus far in his 40-year career as a systems programmer. Yet Chuck was raised in 15 different family situations, with a mother who suffered from such extreme post-partem depression they had to administer shock therapy, and a father who wound up giving his kids away. It was during a session at the dentist that Chuck heard a near-death story that piqued his curiosity, and it planted a seed that came full flower when, in August of 1985 he learned his half-brother David had killed himself. Chuck’s out-of-body understanding of that, coupled with his mother’s vision of David and Jesus, became Chuck’s personal introduction to the other side -- though as most NDErs know, life doesn’t necessarily get any easier, even after our eyes get opened.

Betty Cone: The Blueprint is not complete
When she was 17, Betty Cone was in a bad car accident and had a slight concussion. She was in a coma for 5 days. During the coma, she had a NDE and went through a tunnel to Heaven, and stood face to face with Jesus Christ. Jesus told her he had a work for her on the earth, and that it was not yet her time, that she hadn't completed the blueprint He had for my life, which Satan had disrupted and tried to stop. It was definitely life changing, though it took her several years to fully realize what all it meant.

President's Day: Speaking Truth to Power
Host Lee Witting recorded this President’s Day show just two years ago, one month into the Trump presidency, and was stunned to find how relevant it remains today. Lee writes, "With the exception of the administration’s revolving door of appointees, the tenor of authoritarianism, oligarchy, racism and Russian influence remains remarkably unchanged since this program first aired. The element of hope introduced by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation should not discourage the role NDErs should be playing every day in speaking truth to power. As an NDEr myself, I feel obliged to do the same."

Gary Wimmer: A Second in Eternity
Our guest today, Gary Wimmer, had a remarkable near-death experience back in 1977 when, as a pedestrian, he was struck by a speeding car. Gary describes his NDE in detail on our June 22, 2015 show, and I urge you to go to our Past Shows button when you can, and listen to that amazing description. The story also appears in Gary’s book, A Second in Eternity. On this show, we revisit that day, Feb. 7, 1977, and explore how Gary’s vision differed from the more typical tunnel-light experience, and what it might have meant in strengthening his already developing psychic powers.

The Story of The Wandering Jew Part Three
Over the past two weeks, we presented parts one and two of Lee's version of The Legend of the Wandering Jew; the story of a man who was condemned to walk the Earth until Jesus returned. This week, you will hear the conclusion. It was in graduate school some 30 years ago when Lee first encountered this story, and decided to turn it into a audio production for a school project. The audio cassette is 30 years old, so there are a few glitches.

The Story of The Wandering Jew
The story of the Wandering Jew has been told many ways since the legend got started some 2000 years ago. It concerns a man supposedly cursed by Jesus to live until the Second Coming. Host Lee Witting told his version of the story as a graduate school project, and recently re-discovered the 30-year-old cassette tape with its multi-cultural legends of life, death and the end times. This show presents Part One of that tape (together with the inevitable half dozen minor glitches given to a tape this old). Part Two will be presented in next week's show.

Approaching the Final Threshold of Death
One of the services IANDS provides for its members are monthy accounts of NDEs as written down and provided to IANDS by the experiencers themselves. Lee tries to share these experiences as they come out because they are fascinating and to give anyone interested in the afterlife and NDEs the reminder that IANDS is well worth joining. This episode, he shared three such stories.

Our return guest Kenneth Leth is one of those individuals. As an adult, he recalls visions he had as a child, which at the time, were disguised for his own protection. Ken has appeared on the show three times; last Christmas, and twice in November of 2015.

A Spiritual Hypothesis
Daniel Punzak, P.E. has a chemical engineering degree from Carnegie Mellon University, and worked in the environmental field for over 30 years. At that same time he has been fascinated with near-death experiences and other aspects of soul and spirit. Traditional Western religion explains that each human has a spiritual aspect called a soul. Moreover, several passages in the Bible allude to humans having a soul and a spirit. Dan has explored this idea and found numerous modern psychological findings that support this notion. Shamanism and some Eastern religious concepts also support this idea. Dan believes diverse concepts such as creativity and mental illness can be explained by the idea that two spiritual forms are in each human. Through the study of diverse physical and psychological concepts, as well, Dan has evolved an integrated overall theory of human behavior which led him to author the book, A Spiritual Hypothesis: An Inquiry into Abnormal and Paranormal Behavior.

Changed in a Flash: Elizabeth Krohn
When Elizabeth Krohn headed to her Houston synagogue to attend a memorial service for her beloved grandfather, she couldn’t have known that her life would be changed forever. As she drove the pleasant weather gave way to a downpour and fierce thunder and lightning soon followed. She arrived at the synagogue and, with her young son in tow, started to make her way from the car to the building. It was then that she was struck by lightning. Elizabeth saw herself lying on the asphalt as she floated up to what she describes as a garden electrified with vivid, unearthly colors and infused with a sense of unconditional kindness and love. She felt herself communing with a spiritual being, while her sense of time was upended. She was given the choice of returning to her earthly life or remaining in the otherworldly paradise. When she was told that if she went back she would have a third child—a girl who had already selected her and her husband as parents—she rejoined her body and the temporal world. Then it got even stranger. After the lightning strike her life was changed forever. She began to have dreams about future events, developed synesthesia, started seeing auras, and sometimes had a sense of inanimate objects radiating a life force. Oh, and she also gave birth to a daughter. In CHANGED IN A FLASH: ONE WOMAN’S NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE AND WHY A SCHOLAR THINKS IT EMPOWERS US ALL (North Atlantic Books, October 2018, hardcover) Elizabeth recounts her wondrous and unsettling story.

Know Death Well
Nathalie Millar is a sister, wife, mother and friend. At the age of 17, and again when she was 30, Nathalie crossed over from this life into the afterlife where she was “told” it was not her time and was returned to this life with the message, "know death well". Motivated by these experiences, Nathalie embarked on 36 years of self-study, including conversations with souls before, during and after their death and acting as an empath for the recently deceased whose communications manifest themselves in the fibre art that Nathalie creates and has presented to organizations such as the International Association for Near Death Studies (IANDS). Currently she is the Grief and Bereavement Coordinator for the Mission Hospice Society, is a certified Death Doula, and cofacilitates afterlife conversations groups.

The Ox Herding Lesson
Today’s show is somewhat different, although it speaks to the universality of mystical experience. It’s based on a famous Buddhist meditation known as the ox-herding lessons, where an untrained ox is a metaphor for the untrained mind, and the training is analogous for the pursuit of enlightenment. The story is known to have emerged from 11th Century China, and was created in drawings and verse for each step of the way. At some point, it’s said, the original verses were lost, but the drawings were preserved. The tradition has morphed to other animals, including the training of elephants. The original had five stages of development, although later versions doubled the number of steps toward discipling the mind, and then rejoining the world.

Andy Parks
For most of his life, Andy Parks lived in pursuit of material possessions, career and status. Even though he achieved what would be considered a financially stable life and career success, he still felt empty inside. Prior to learning about the NDE, Andy was not a believer in an afterlife, and considered himself an atheist. In 1995, out of desperation, he dropped to his knees and asked God to come into his life, if God existed. That is when Andy began studying the NDE and now credits it to an absolute belief in God, a life after this earthly existence, a guide for how to live his life, and changing how he treats other people. Retired from the corporate world, he now teaches business courses at the college level.

Jim Bruton's Visit to the In Between
Jim Bruton was flying a slightly later model reproduction airplane in October 2016 when his engine quit and he crashed into a forest. Breaking all of his ribs, rupturing both lungs, breaking his right leg in numerous places....he was fortunate to stay alive until the medical evacuation helicopter could pick him up and fly him straight to the Hartford Trauma Center. There, with multiple 6+ hour operations planned and the surgeons telling Jim's wife that it would be touch and go for that week and they could still lose him at any time, it was decided to put Jim into a coma for that entire week.

And that is where our story really begins, for in that coma Jim went to a place he calls the In Between.

The Terror that Comes in the Night
David Hufford's work exploring the experiential basis for belief in the supernatural, focusing here on the so-called Old Hag experience, a psychologically disturbing event in which a victim claims to have encountered some form of malign entity while dreaming (or awake). Sufferers report feeling suffocated, held down by some "force," paralyzed, and extremely afraid.

The experience is surprisingly common: the author estimates that approximately 15 percent of people undergo this event at some point in their lives. Various cultures have their own name for the phenomenon and have constructed their own mythology around it; the supernatural tenor of many Old Hag stories is unavoidable. Hufford, as a folklorist, is well-placed to investigate this puzzling occurrence.

Rev. Canon Timothy M. Dombek
Rev’d Canon Timothy M. Dombek, is unusual among main line clergy for his understanding of the importance of personal mystical experience, and how it can contribute to the vitality of traditional worship. Canon Timothy first became interested in Near Death Experiences while serving as a chaplain during seminary CPE training when he read the book, Closer to the Light, by Dr. Melvin Morse. Since then he has read extensively in the area of NDEs, and got to know Rev. Howard Storm after reading his classic book on his NDE, My Descent into Death. Howard Storm led a Quiet Day at Timothy’s church on the first Saturday of Advent 2016, and the next day shared the story of his NDE with the larger community in an open talk given at Advent Episcopal Church. Canon Timothy hopes to begin an IANDS chapter in the Northwest Valley of Phoenix later this year, meeting on Sunday afternoons at the church.

Terry Diane Andersen
This week's guest, Terry Diane Andersen, writes about herself: "As a child I could see the natural energies of trees, mountains, animals, and people, and experienced departed loved ones sitting on my bed communicating with me. A sudden NDE transported me to another dimension with three beings who gave me a past and future life review. I experienced a change of consciousness and personality that left me with the ability to see through time and space, into people's lives and bodies, preview events with people I had yet to meet, communicate with departed souls and more. I sought extensive training in controlled remote viewing, medical applications, neuroscience and psychic mediumship to learn how to apply my abilities to help others."

Mediumship and Spiritual Healing
Janie Thompson had a profound NDE in 2008 while in the emergency room. She was taken to the hospital with a sudden illness early one morning, and by that afternoon, the illness had progressed rapidly. Leaving her body, entering the light and being in spirit form changed her life dramatically. The process of integrating the aftereffects of her NDE were challenging, especially integrating the spontaneous mediumship experiences that began occurring immediately after her NDE. Having overcome these challenges, her focus is now on helping and healing others. Janie serves as an intuitive healer and psychic medium. She consults with NDErs around the world who have felt challenged to cope with NDE aftereffects, especially mediumship.

ENCORE SHOW: Thoughts on MLK
On Dr. Martim Luther King, Jr. Day, host Lee Witting suggests there are some indications in King's life and in his teachings that Dr. King might have experienced an NDE.

The Problem of Lies
On the first day of 2018, host Lee Witting tackles the problem of lies being told to the world today, and how those lies can kill the unwary. Healing comes through recognition that every lie can be tested by the lessons of the Light: Test each assertion you encounter — especially on the Internet. Just ask yourself, does the statement truly work to bring compassion, empathy and love to unite and heal the world, or does it work to generate anger, fear and confusion by seeking to divide and conquer.

Visions from the Future
Kenneth Leth first described his remarkable experience on NDE Radio’s past shows of November 9 and 16, 2015, and today’s interview looks at prophecies he received as a child that seem particularly relevant today. Ken’s NDE began shortly after getting prepped for an operation on his burst appendix. A nurse strapped the eight-year-old to an operating table, where he was sedated with ether. The year was 1963, about a month before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and Ken saw that coming, and much more -- visions that speak to dangerous situations we find ourselves in today. Ken has written the story in his new book, Mother in Heaven, available in a Kindle edition on Amazon.

Robert and Suzanne Mays: The Self Conscious Mind
Robert and Suzanne Mays have studied the phenomena of near-death experiences (NDEs) together for over 35 years, although neither has had an NDE. Their research focuses on the phenomena connected with the out-of-body component of NDEs, especially veridical perceptions and other verified paranormal phenomena during an NDE. Their theory of consciousness, the "mind-entity hypothesis", is derived from NDE and neurological phenomena. It explains how the nonmaterial mind interacts with the brain in ordinary consciousness. They wrote the Foreword to the recent book The Self Does Not Die, published by IANDS. Their web site is

Life Changes from the Other Side
NDErs often return from the experience with increased knowledge and a need to change careers. But sometimes — perhaps more often than we think — life-changing information comes through from the Other Side without our going there to get it. Today’s guest, Anja Prestridge, is one such person with a fascinating story to tell.

Why does traditional Christianity tend to ignore the Near-Death Experience? Does part of it have to do with NDErs' increased belief in the possibility of reincarnation?

NDEs and the Matrix Reality
Lee Witting and his wife, Charlene Kent, continue the discussion from three shows ago of how NDEs mirror this reality. The "Matrix" reality is referenced to ideas from Yuvai Noah Harari's recent book, "Homo Deus," and Dr. Raymond Moody's search for a nonsense language to describe NDEs (from last week's show) are compared to science's current obsession with data flows as the universal language.
July 31, 2017
The Language of the Near Death Experience
Last week's interview with Dr. Raymond Moody continues with an exploration of how a new language may be required to communicate the information gathered from NDEs. What some would call "nonsense" may be required to break through the limitations of rational thinking.
July 24, 2017
The Father of the Near-Death Experience
Our guest today, Dr. Raymond Moody, is the man who pioneered modern research into NDEs.  His interest in the subject began with his study of early Greek philosophy, and Plato's powerful story of the warrior Er -- the classic tale of near-death experience as told in Plato's Republic.  Dr. Moody's PhD in philosophy was followed a few years later by an MD in psychiatry, and his work in forensic psychiatry. Dr. Moody is best known for his groundbreaking, best-selling 1975 book, "Life After Life," in which he coined the term "near-death 'experience." Many books later, we know that was just the beginning of his exploration of how we might understand NDEs in a world given over to the constricted notion that the scientific method is the only path to knowledge.  
July 17, 2017
What is Real?
On last week's show, host Lee Witting discussed how NDEs should be considered not only as windows into heaven, but also as mirrors to reflect the nature of the "realness" of our lives on earth. Lee continues that discussion with today's guest, Lee's wife, Charlene Kent, who holds a Master of Theological Studies degree from Bangor Seminary, and has made a study of some science fiction approaches to interpreting what we call "real."
July 10, 2017
Windows or Mirrors
Are NDEs gifts meant to be windows into heaven, or intended more as mirrors to reflect the NDErs' roles in their lives on Earth? In this show, host Lee Witting speculates on the nature of what the world calls "reality," what NDErs see as reality, and how the two might be connected -- or perhaps even reconciled.

Father Walton and the Shroud of Turin
Last week’s conversation with Father Rod Walton continues today with a discussion of the Shroud of Turin, believed by many to be the burial cloth of Jesus mentioned in the gospels. The roller coaster ride of scientific theories concerning the Shroud now seems to lean toward confirmation that the Shroud is an authentic full-body image of Jesus, a photo generated by the flash of light of the resurrection.

Janice Goff & The Storm Warning
Our return guest today is Janice Goff, who has experienced many encounters in her life with aspects of the Other Side. One of the most powerful – and meaningful – experiences was when her deceased father came back to motivate her to save her mother from the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, as it swept through Louisiana and Mississippi. It’s estimated Katrina ranks in the top five of the most deadly, damaging and expensive natural disasters ever to hit this country, and Janice’s aging mother was in the path of destruction even before Janice — who was living in Arizona by then -- knew the storm was about to hit. That’s when her deceased father warned her of what was to come. The photo is one Janice took of that angry storm in late August, 2005.

Lawrence Furman Part Two
We welcome Lawrence Furman back to the program to share more of his personal story. He began having body journeys when he was 9 years old. But the freedom and joy those flights provided came into stark contrast when he began sinking into serious mental illness.

A cure seemed out of the question, until he died - three times. He will talk about his final two deaths on this episode.

The Visions of Karen Thomas
Karen Thomas shares her NDE story from July 7, 1982 – and the verification of her out of body perceptions. The surgeon saved her life and Karen was able to verify with him what she had seen while out of body. Recently, Karen followed up with the surgeon again and he remembers that day even after nearly 35 years, and remembers some of their later conversation. Karen experienced a vision of prayers, which appeared like “musical notes” that she saw rising up to her from people praying for her -- especially the prayer of her 9-year-old daughter.

Visit to Heaven
Mindy C. Speranza has had a difficult life. She grew up in an abusive home, was sent to several institutions, and ended up a single mom, forced to raise her two children alone. She has dangerous conflicts with her neighbor and is forced out of her business by her partner. All of this would be enough to make anyone quit and declare that there is no God and nothing awaiting us after this life.

One morning Mindy wakes up to hear a voice on the TV telling her, “We are body, soul, and spirit, and most people have no power in their life because they don’t go deep enough to touch Spirit, where all the power is.” She realizes that it’s God speaking directly to her.

Mindy goes about her day in a panic until she has the time to “pray deeper.” As she retreats further into her spiritual center, she feels her spirit being lifted up by God. He takes her on a miraculous tour of the afterlife.

And Mindy comes away from the experience with the absolute knowledge that God loves every one of us.

It was July, 1968, when high school senior Belinda Carter, thinking about the plans for her date that night, was run down by an 86-year-old and experienced the bliss of the White Light of heaven. What a shock then, to recover consciousness in a dark place that turned out to be the local mortician’s morgue!

Revelations of Hell
In this pre-Halloween show, host Lee Witting presents revelations of Hell from the Middle Ages to the current era, and points out that today’s fascination with monsters, vampires, zombies and apocalypse may have arisen to supplant more traditional visions of eternal torment for our sins.

Churches Should Discuss NDE's
Churches could be the logical vehicle for conveying information about the NDEs we experience, and yet, many pastors shy away from the discussion of today's personal mystical experiences, relying instead on the mystical events written about in the Bible thousands of years ago. They speak of the word of God—and yet, the proliferation of NDEs would suggest that God is still speaking to us – if we would only listen, and then share the information. Host Lee Witting reads from an article just published in the September, 2016 issue of The Congregationalist Magazine, written by him to the churches concerning the importance of NDEs.

The Origin of our Nature
On this week's show, we continue our conversation with Maria Dolhai who lives in Melbourne, Australia. Since she was a young child, she had great interest in understanding the nature of our true being. This interest was induced by two distinct spiritual experiences, one of which was an unforgettable dream. The recount of this event was read by Lee on the 4th of November 2013 show. This seems to have acted as catalyst in her further exploration of the origin of our nature, and led to the discovery of the true source of happiness, peace and connectedness.

The Nature of our True Being
Today's guest, Maria Dolhai, lives in Melbourne, Australia. About herself she writes: Since I was a young child I had great interest in understanding the nature of our true being. This interest was induced by two distinct spiritual experiences, one of which was an unforgettable dream. The recount of this event was read by Lee on the 4th of November 2013 show (second half). This seems to have acted as catalyst in my further exploration of the origin of our nature, and led to the discovery of the true source of happiness, peace and connectedness.

God's Ecosystem
Arnulfo (Chico) Gonzalez volunteered to fight in Vietnam, and was a paratrooper and decorated as a combat infantryman. In his career he became a cost engineering professional, and worked with NASA on the Orion Spacecraft, Lockheed Martin Astronautics, BP Oil, Intel, and the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory. He has authored a paper titled, “God’s Ecosystem,” about his two near-death experiences – in 2000 and 2012. He has been married 40 years, with three grown children. He and his wife, Carol, are now retired and living in Colorado. About his NDEs, Chico writes, “I have this great opportunity to share my story, insight and inspirational knowledge about God’s spiritual love for all his creation, which are not meant to be a secret.”

The Spiritual Implications from 9-11
Today’s broadcast is the re-recording of a show first presented on January 5, 2015, which reflected on some of the spiritual implications of the events surrounding the tragedy of 9-11. 9-11, and the financial collapse of 2008, were seen by Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn as part of a larger, seven-year cycle of spiritual setbacks brought on by our own bad behavior. This year, 2016, the next following the seven-year cycle of the Hebrew Shemitah, has not yet demonstrated the same degree of setback Rabbi Cahn was warning of – unless you count the state of our presidential campaign! Given the potential outcome of November’s election, 2016 could be a fitting consequence to the seven-year cycle of national disasters Cahn has written about. Give a listen to this show again, and see what you think.

Visions of Eden
What does the Genesis description of Eden have in common with the amazing descriptions of luminous trees and radiant flowers envisioned in NDEs? Was Eden God’s one attempt to create a place “On earth as it is in Heaven?" Host Lee Witting discusses the possible relationship, and how our world seems to be drifting further away from that place of primordial beauty.

The Self Does Not Die
For those who believe in the reality of NDEs, nothing is more moving than visions describing the landscape and light of the other side. But for those who doubt, nothing is more convincing than OBEs and NDEs offering veridical evidence that these visions are verifiably true. IANDs' new translation of the book, The Self Does Not Die, offers more than a hundred such verified stories, and host Lee Witting reads a sampling.

Conceptions of the Afterlife in Early Civilizations
Lee's guest is Dr. Gregory Shushan author of the Grawemeyer Award-nominated Conceptions of the Afterlife in Early Civilizations: Universalism, Constructivism, and Near-Death Experience. His work convincingly shows that NDEs have inspired afterlife conceptions among world cultures from ancient times. That is, NDEs appear to be a causal inspiration of religious belief from ancient times, not an illusion produced as the result of religious belief.

The Mystic Revelations of Don Green
Don Green has experienced many personal mystical revelations through the practice of traditional Christianity. He grew up the oldest of seven children in a strict Irish Catholic family. After high school, he briefly entered the seminary only to find that really wasn’t what God wanted of him at that time. Shortly after he left the seminary, he received his draft notice, but choose to enter the Navy, to pursue a construction trade. He spent four years in the Navy, going to Viet Nam in 1967-68. He was married and running his own construction business when he became involved with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement. In January 1979, he was involved in an automobile accident, which laid him up for almost a year. He lost his home and his business, but wound up reading many Christian books, particularly a lot of C. S. Lewis, which helped him regain his religious footing.

Group NDE
Host Lee Witting reflects on the tragic Orlando shootings and the nature of “Group NDEs” — reports of what happens between souls when we die together, how those souls perceive the situation at the time, and then what we learn when one of those killed is told to return.

Rev. Catherine Paretti
Rev. Catherine Paretti is a clairvoyant, spiritual counselor, healer, medium, teacher and life coach. Catherine's life was riddled with illness, and after being given six months to live, she had an NDE and was gone for five minutes. Upon her return she was healed, and even though she had been clairvoyant since the age of five, her gifts became more intense and Catherine discovered a healing ability, knowledge and wisdom that was to aid her work. During her NDE she saw herself being ordained. On August 12, 2000 this vision was fulfilled when Catherine was ordained as an Interfaith Minister.

Catherine has written two books, Just Be, and The Perfection of Being, which she was guided to write. Catherine was born in Astoria, Queens and now resides in Manhattan, New York. She believes that with faith all things are possible.

Understanding Distressing NDE's
How can there be distressing near-death experiences when God is described as all-forgiving and loving? Does love by its very nature have to be reciprocal in order to succeed in heaven? Host Lee Witting quotes some NDErs, and gives his point of view on the matter.

Hello from Heaven- After-Death Communication
After-death communications,or ADCs, occur when someone is contacted spontaneously and directly by a deceased family member or friend, without the help of any medium. Bill Guggenheim's research shows that these spiritual experiences offer hope, love, and comfort for thousands of people. Included are more than 350 first-hand accounts of those whose lives have been changed and even protected by messages or signs from the deceased.

Soul Code
Our guest Matthew DeBow is an author and inventor who most recently has moved into medical device design and manufacturing. His first book describes the healing power of Light. In 2015 DeBow released his second book, titled Soul Code: Near-Death experiences, Pre-Conception Memories, Transformative Spiritual Events, Life-Between-Life Regression, Induced After-Death Communication. In his book he compares a wide range of research studies from science, medicine, psychology and theology, gathering data about the human soul. The thread that connects these experiences clearly shows a higher dimensional aspect of who we are, consistently, no matter what our personal beliefs are -- atheist, agnostic or religious.

Visions of America's Future
Guest Kenneth Leth has been on NDE Radio twice before, back in November of 2015, and if you haven’t listened to his story thus far, I’d recommend your listening to those shows from our archives. In describing his NDE, Ken reported that at age eight his soul lifted up, but was trapped at first by a long thread that attached him to his body, while the angry ghosts of bad children tormented him in the dark. (Interesting that it sounds something like the political arena in the United States right now!) And coincidentally, the awakened memories he is having these days of what he was shown back then reflect very much on the impending future of the USA.

Sharon Levites
Sharon Levites was riding a bike to her veterinarian-tech graduation party when she was struck by a bus and nearly killed. 45 years later, that accident and her resulting NDE still affect her life — for better and for worse. Sharon is living proof that an understanding approach to near-death experiencers can save them from doctors who prescribe unnecessary, confusing and harmful drugs, and even commit the NDEr to a psychiatric hospital. All this can happen because the patient exhibits otherworldly gifts, and spirit-led expressions of love and empathy, gained from a near-death experience the doctors refuse to understand.

Research Into NDE's
Robert and Suzanne Mays have studied the phenomena related to near-death experiences (NDEs) together for over 35 years, although neither has had a near-death experience. Their research focuses on the phenomena connected with the out-of-body component of NDEs, especially veridical perceptions during an NDE, Neurological phenomena demonstrating the operation of the nonmaterial mind, with a focus on memory formation and recall, Verification and corroboration of specific cases veridical perceptions in an NDE, and Experiments on interactions of the human bioenergy field, such as in an energy healer or a phantom limb, with physical processes such as fluorescent materials and photographic paper.

Rich Kelley: Life is a Stage Play
Rich Kelley is our guest this week. Rich had a near death experience at 15 years old by drowning in the surf in Santa Monica Bay, California. The things that he was shown "on the other side" or at "home" as he calls it, made sense of so many questions we all have about being "here". He has had a number of "paranormal" experiences since that time that most people seem to find of great interest.

Round Trip: The Near Death Experience
Tim O’Reilly grew up in Queens, New York City and had a near death-like experience when he was ten years old. Although he didn’t give much thought to his experience when it happened, Tim believes a seed was planted which inspired him to produce and direct the documentary, Round Trip: The Near Death Experience, thirty years later. Along with "Round Trip’s" general audience appeal, the documentary is being utilized by hospices throughout the country and the world for it’s healing quality. Tim’s film was endorsed by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, who said, “I love 'Round Trip' and all its’ characters.”

Spirtitual Songs from the Other Side
An accidental drug overdose when he was 15 years old gave Paul Espinoza the gift of an NDE. Still he did not change his dangerous lifestyle until two terrible car accidents forced his hand, and he found himself writing spiritual songs and poetry he thinks he may be receiving from his Native American great grandmother (see picture) and her son, Paul’s grandfather, both of whom wrote similar verse when they were still alive.

Claudia Hopper
This program’s guest, Claudia Hopper, faced back in the 1960’s what many teens face today — a dysfunctional, abusive family, a strong willful nature to survive, and an attraction, even addiction to drugs to ease the pain of living. What was added to the mix was a childhood vision of a huge guardian angel, and a near-death experience that ultimately helped guide her to a life of art and a career aimed at helping others.

Now is Your Time
Death has a way of bringing into sharp focus the more important things in life. This is the lesson that D'vora Power learned in December 2013 after a near-death experience from a lingering pneumonia. D'vora had the world by the tail. She was strong and working hard to make her dreams come true. One of those dreams was an all-expense paid cruise to Belize, Honduras, and Cozumel. Several weeks prior to leaving, she experienced flu-like symptoms, but she dragged herself out of bed and boarded the boat anyway. That decision nearly killed her. This is D'vora's story of illness, healing, the loving touch of the Father's hand, the heavenly bodyguards surrounding her, and most importantly, those lessons learned as she peeked beyond the veil.

Conversations with God
This week, we continue our conversation with Ken Leth. In 1963, he left his body during an operation, and he came back with an expanded view of life that he is still trying to figure out. He doesn't have a book to sell. He's not trying to make a name for himself. He just likes to talk about spirituality on a level that too few seem to understand.

More with Thomas D. Abraham on Conciousness
In his lectures, Thomas D. Abraham discusses a consciousness-centric evolutionary theory which goes beyond the widely accepted Darwinian approach and enters the realm of personal transformation. Unlike materialist models concerning physical evolution at the species level, this theory considers the individual’s evolutionary process across multiple lifetimes and towards greater complexity and spiritual maturity. He also examines each of the chakras; not only as energetic centers of the body with physiological correspondences, but as representative of phases in our personal evolutionary history.

Awakenings from the Light
Nancy Rynes was hit by an SUV while riding her bicycle. Suffering from severe spinal and head injuries, Rynes knew she was dying. At that moment, she underwent the first of two life-changing near-death experiences. Rynes, a scientist and confirmed skeptic, was shown the wonders of Heaven, experiencing joy, love, and beauty on such a grand scale that she wept at its magnitude. She then met and spoke with a Being who gave her insights into life, love, and the wonders of Spirit. After her tour of Heaven, she was returned to her body to begin the long, slow process of recovering from injuries her surgeon affirms should have killed her.

Nancy recounts the amazing sights of Heaven in her book Awakenings from the Light.

The Nature of Conciousness
Archit Goel is a scientist/mathematician who lives in Mumbai, India with his wife and son. Along with his understanding of physics, he has studied the teachings of the mystic, Paramahansa Yogananda, and is familiar with Sanskrit and the 5000-year-old Indian texts known as the Upanishads. In his presentation at this year’s IANDS conference, he interpreted scientifically the observations in an NDE, and provided insight into the nature of consciousness. Archie argues that one should be able to reach a single truth via suitable analysis of different phenomenon, removing the conflict between science/math and spirituality.

Death as Transition
Rev. Katherine James Klemstine, DMin, is a recently retired hospice chaplain for Hospice of the Chesapeake in Pasadena, Maryland. Her educational background includes a Masters of Divinity and a Doctorate in Ministry, with specialization in the field of Ministry at the End of Life, and in her practice she developed and taught the Vigil Volunteer Training Program.

Katherine’s work with dying patients uniquely qualifies her for her discussion at the 2015 IANDS Annual Conference in San Antonio, TX on the topic, Death as Transition: The Soul’s Withdrawal from the Body and NDE’s during the Dying Process. Katherine examines the transition of the soul as it withdraws from the physical body during the dying process, and reflects on the Near-Death Experience in terms of the withdrawal and subsequent return of the soul to the physical body. She compares the physical description of the dying process to the changes in consciousness as the soul passes from the physical body into the non-physical and spiritual realms. In her work she also shares her guidelines on how those at the bedside of a dying person can provide a compassionate, caring, listening presence to support the dying person who has experienced an NDE.

Edgar Cayce and NDE?
Neil Helm’s interest in whether Edgar Cayce, America’s greatest psychic, experienced an NDE, is probably related to Neil's own near-death experience when he was a child. Neil was reared close to the Montana/North Dakota border in a farm-ranch setting. He had a near-death experience at age five, when he drowned in a hot spring in central Montana. It profoundly changed his life, and Neil developed a personal relationship with God that exists to this day.

Psychology and the Near-Death Experience
Near death experiences tantalize the public’s interest in what lies beyond the final human breath. Answers have been streaming by the thousands during the last few decades from people who have had them. However, grand designs can only be splendidly revealed by connecting thousands of NDE accounts like a jigsaws puzzle. In his groundbreaking book, Psychology of the Near Death Experience, Roy L. Hill roughly sketches God’s canvas by integrating hundreds of NDE testimonies within the context of human psychology.

Now Deirdre strives to share what she terms "the within that connects us all with the invisible wiring of universal Love." She insists that one does not need to have a near-death experience to open hearts to what is out there waiting. Her book, While I Was Out, is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and at her website.

Bo Billups, a non-NDEr himself, was motivated by NDE research to start a death & dying study/support group at his church, moderate NDE book discussions and search for a faith community that more fully reflected the lessons of the NDE. He’ll share that process as well as the responses he’s observed from many other non-NDErs. He believes we don’t need to have an NDE to appreciate the profound life lessons they reveal.

Bo has observed that when exposed to NDE research and the personal NDE stories, some “non-near death experiencers” are compelled to share their own unique spiritual experiences they have rarely, if ever, discussed before. The topic can also lead to a new openness to spirituality based on living without fear, living with purpose, and the true nature of consciousness.

Angels in Disguse
Alexa Hartung has worked in business, and also as a massage therapist, Reiki master and teacher, certified nurse aide, and author. Following her second NDE, Alexa found that dogs especially would send pictures or words into her head. What they showed her went way beyond simple words or pictures. Alexa has self-published Angels in Disguise, a book about her twelve dogs, after-death visits, five cats, and friends' pets. A frequent speaker at the Seattle and Phoenix area IANDS, Alexa will lead a discussion in San Antonio at the upcoming IANDS Convention on Labor Day weekend. At that venue, she will discuss the order in heaven that pets are involved in.

Veridical Perceptions in Near-Death Experiences
Robert Mays and his wife Suzanne have studied NDEs together for over 35 years, although neither has had a near-death experience. They research the phenomena of NDEs and shared-death experiences (SDEs) and the implications for understanding consciousness and neurological function. In particular they study the phenomena connected with the out-of-body component of the NDE, especially veridical perceptions during NDEs and SDEs, and apparent interactions between the NDE and physical reality during their NDE. They also study the neurological evidence of the non-material “mind” during ordinary consciousness and the neurological mechanisms for an interface between the “mind” and the brain.

Church Father, Oregin of Alexandria). Dennis is also an accomplished musician and actor, and an important part of Bangor's Brick Church Theater Company.

There is no Death Revisited
Gloria Oelman grew up in the 50s in a mining town in the outback of Australia. Family life was chaotic and unstable as her father had done a disappearing act and her mother was often hospitalised with nervous breakdowns. Some of her caretakers were angels, some were devils.

She met her husband when she was 18 and he was her saviour. They married in 1970 and soon went into business together. For most of their married life, they were joined at the hip with no children to distract them from each other. His death in 1997 left a gaping hole in Gloria's life but it also proved to be a catalyst to reconnect with the spiritual life that had sustained her in childhood. She was sent on a journey of discovery she would never have imagined, and this led her to finally accept that there really is no death.
