Life After Death category graphicBy now, we've all heard stories of people "dying" on the operating table (or elsewhere) and then coming back with tales to tell of meeting up with their dead grandmother, or with Jesus, or with a bright light. Years ago, these "tales" were considered strange and delusional, and thus not many people shared their stories.

In the past years, many have "come out of the closet" sharing their experiences on the other side of the veil... what happened, who they saw, what they were told. A common thread is the bright light, as well as being told "It's not your time. You must go back."

Visitations from the Other Side

And in the same way, many now feel more comfortable sharing their memories of visitations from their deceased grandmother, or mother, or friend. Some of these visits occur in the dream state, others in the meditative state, and others just in the "normal" course of events.

For those of us who have been visited by someone on the other side, there is no doubt remaining that there is life after death. For those who have not had that experience, reading the stories of others can help shed light on the question: Is there life after death?
