Why It’s Important To Know About Shadow Issues And Work On Them

What I Learned From My Four Near-Death Experiences

by David Sunfellow

Having had four NDEs over the course of my life impacted me profoundly. As a medical doctor, it prompted me to shift my medical specialty into pioneering STE research and counseling. My personal struggle for understanding convinced me of the need to spread awareness of STEs, and to affirm that they are not hallucinations! My NDEs also impacted me profoundly personally, as a spiritual seeker. My multiple experiences on “the other side” taught me many spiritual truths. The most powerful lessons I learned were these…

And that takes time, patience, and effort. And a whole new set of skills that are completely alien to normal, every day life.”
