A near-death experience (NDE) is a experience where a person either seems to be at the point of death and recover, or who narrowly escapes death. Multiple sensations including detachment from the body, panoramic memory, euphoric emotions, dissolution from self, and the presence of light, and deceased relatives. Interpretation of these events often corresponds with the beliefs of the person experiencing it.
Looking into NDE’s can help determine how consciousness can become separated from the brain under certain conditions and glimpse into where consciousness goes after death. The majority of current scientific data comes from case collections and surveys. If a controlled experiment in which it would be predictable for someone to have a NDE or susceptible to a cardiac arrest, and then test them on information they would of not be able to obtain.
Common NDE features and elements:
-The perception and feeling of being located outside of the body.
-A feeling of love, and well being or traveling through a tunnel.
-Having a life review or panoramic memory of your personal impact on others.
-Being aware, encountering, and communicating with light.
-Meeting deceased relatives and acquaintances.
An out-of-body experience (OBE) is an interpretation of an experience that entails the separation of consciousness from the body. OBEs can be induced by brain traumas, sensory deprivation, near-death experiences, psychedelic drugs, dehydration, or lack of sleep. An OBE begins when a person loses contact with sensory input from the body while remaining conscious. The person retains awareness, but that perception is no longer from their physical senses. The Astral dimension may resemble the awake world but has a different set of characteristics and scientific laws.
Conditions that promote an OBE are: a relaxed feeling, sensory restriction, and a belief that the event can occur. The perception of the environment is described as visually realistic according to regular senses. Additional effects reported during OBE’s are: traveling through objects, thought travel, a 360 degree vision, and flying.
Telepathy – information perceived by one person is gained by another person without physical sensory. Thinking about an old friend that you haven’t seen or spoken within years and shortly after they call you.
Clairvoyance – gaining information about an environment or object without the physical senses. Consciously getting a mental picture about your neighbor's room, contents, and confirming the details thereafter.
Precognition – information about a future event is acquired without the use of the physical senses. Having a dream about falling off a bike and scraping your elbow and days later having that actual event take place similar to your dream.
Psychokinesis (PK) – directly affecting an environment or object by intention. Moving an object that is blocked off from physical variables.
A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. Lucid dreaming is the ability to become lucid while you are in a dream. In a lucid dream, the dreamer has greater chances to exert some degree of control over their participation within the dream and are able to manipulate their experiences in the dream environment.
Lucid dreaming can be induced in various ways including, Dream Induced Lucid Dream (DILD) and Wake Induced Lucid Dream (WILD). DILD is an unrealistic characteristic of a dream which makes the dreamer enter lucidity. WILD is where a dreamer consciously enters into the lucid dream from an awakened state or falling asleep. By having a dream journal you can increase the chance of remembering your dream. With practice, your awareness can be more increased and focused during sleep. Use comfortable ways to help bring your attention from a dream state to a lucid state.
