Quotes “Here is a universal truth that everyone needs to know: Spiritual experiences, including near-death experiences, DO NOT perfect the human side of our nature. Spiritual experiences can, however, blind us and make us (and others) think we are more developed than we actually are. If we focus too much on the spiritual realities of […]
What are we to think about near-death experiences that predict the end of the world? Are these dramatic, mostly apocalyptic predictions reliable? Where do they come from? And what can we learn from them?
As an example of the kind of dire predictions we are talking about, this resource page begins with a 15-year-old Jewish boy describing his apocalyptic near-death experience. That video is followed by several more dramatic NDE predictions, including predictions from George Ritchie, Deputy Marty Breeden, Kathy Baker, Reinee Pasarow, Howard Storm, Kenneth Leth, and Mellen-Thomas Benedict.
Then we hear from Robert Mays and Kenneth Ring, two NDE researchers who examine this topic from different angles. Mays examines several current predictions that are waiting to come true, while Ring discusses a series of 1988 predictions that failed to materialize.
One important point worth noting: According to Mays, only four percent of the near-death experiences collected by IANDS contain future global predictions. Only four percent? Why so few? And why are most of them so dire?
Finally, this page includes comments, videos, links, and other information that explores the exceptionally poor track record of apocalyptic predictions (both past and present, from near-death experiences and elsewhere) and offers some concrete advise as to how to face — and constructively shape — whatever future awaits us.

In a hospital in Switzerland in 1944, the world-renowned psychiatrist Carl G. Jung, had a heart attack and then a near-death experience. His vivid encounter with the light, plus the intensely meaningful insights led Jung to conclude that his experience came from something real and eternal. Jung’s experience is unique in that he saw the Earth from a vantage point of about a thousand miles above it. His incredibly accurate view of the Earth from outer space was described about two decades before astronauts in space first described it. Subsequently, as he reflected on life after death, Jung recalled the meditating Hindu from his near-death experience and read it as a parable of the archetypal Higher Self, the God-image within. Carl Jung, who founded analytical psychology, centered on the archetypes of the collective unconscious. The following is an excerpt from his autobiography entitled Memories, Dreams, Reflections describing his near-death experience.

Here are a few quotes from near-death experiencers that illustrate the power — […]

David Sunfellow asks: “I’m wondering if you have come across any NDEs that feature Muhammad as a central figure greeting NDErs? I had a reader recently ask me this question, and I could only think of one NDE where Muhammad showed up. And he didn’t show up as a greeting presence like Jesus often does, […]
