The NDE and Humanity
being is a very, very special person. One proof
of this can be found in the reproductive process
which led to our birth. Everyone begins life by
winning a race against 40
million to 1.2 billion
other sperm cells. This alone is evidence that everyone
is literally one in a million. As a part of life,
we are a part of God. People who have a near-death
experience often realize this fact first-hand in
a very profound way. There is more to humanity than
meets the eye. Beyond our visual reality, there
exists a higher reality where our true self resides.
This reality exists within us.
1. A Brief Summary of Human Origins
The story of
the origin of humanity is a story that resembles the parable
Long ago, our souls
from the Divine Consciousness to become individualized portions
of God. Our souls entered the physical realm and some came to
the Earth and began inhabiting the bodies of a particular species
and began to influence them to come out of the trees and create
societies. Although humans seem like a small creation in an
infinite universe, this is really only an illusion. We are the
human part of God and are extensions and thoughts in the Mind
of God. We are God developing individual consciousness. We are
God becoming human. We are the body, mind and spirit of God.
We are a oneness of the Whole and the wholeness of the One.
The core of our being is perfect love, perfect God-ness. We
are powerful spirit beings.
2. Human Origins
From the light we have come, and to the light we all
shall return. (Josiane
It is God's love for us that sends us on our journey
and it is our love for God that allows us to return to God's
loving arms again. (David
We are all-knowing. But we have chosen to forget most of our
knowledge in order to come to Earth and have human experiences.
Jesus' parable of the prodigal son is the cosmic tale of each
and every human being. We have all forgotten that we are children
of God and that our spiritual side needs to return to God. (Dr.
We are like babies crawling around, trying to learn how to use
the forces within us. They are powerful forces and are governed
by laws that will protect us from ourselves. But as we grow
and seek the positive all around us, even the laws themselves
will be revealed. We will be given all that we are prepared
to receive. (Betty Eadie)
We are immortal and indestructible. We have always been alive,
we always will be, and there is no way in this world that we
can ever be lost. It is impossible for anyone to fall into a
crack in the universe somewhere and never be heard from again.
We are utterly safe and we have always been forever and ever.
Upon receiving the plan of creation, we [as spirits] sang in
rejoicing and were filled with God's love. We were filled with
joy as we saw the growth we would have here on Earth and the
joyous bonds we would create with each other. (Betty
Earth is not our natural home and we did not originate here.
Earth is only a temporary place for our schooling and everyone
has cultivated a certain degree of light (knowledge) here. (Betty
The reason we need to experience a separation of our total reality
when we take a physical body is because in order for us to appreciate,
benefit, and learn all we can from our physical life, we must
re-discover what we knew before - now in physical ways. We must
also discover how to return to God. By the good that we do to
each other here, by the ways we improve our minds, and by the
ways that we learn to cope with a physical body and physical
life, we earn our right of safe passage back to God; and in
so doing, we likewise honor God. (David
We are to make the most of our opportunity for ourselves and
God. We will return to God with the knowledge and experience
we have gained and God is enhanced by it. (David
3. Human Evolution
NDE and Reincarnation
Our bodies evolved from the Earth.
Our minds evolved from the stars. Our spirits evolved from God.
We are evolving into the image of God in body, mind and spirit.
Humans are educated at a higher level by spirit beings who bring
us into heaven. We grow and increase, and grow and increase,
and shed the concerns, desires, and base animal stuff that we
have been fighting much of our life. Earthly appetites melt
away. It is no longer a struggle to fight them. We become who
we truly are, which is part of the divine. (Rev.
Humans are immortal beings who have been alive forever. Our
bodies come from an unending stream of life, going back to the
Big Bang and beyond. Humans are part of a natural living system
that recycles itself endlessly. (Mellen-Thomas
Humanity is progressing up the spiral of evolution. There is
no problem, no pain, no ill, no disharmony in the whole universe
that eventually will not be made into harmony. (Margaret
Everything is evolving exactly the way it should and the ultimate
destiny for every living being is to return to the Source, the
Light, Pure Love. (Juliet
Life is a cycle for humans to improve and become perfected.
(Dr. Frank Oski)
Humans have a potential that is so far beyond our wildest dreams.
Whatever we want to be we can be. It may take a hundred lifetimes
of learning but if we want it we can get it. (Darren
It is possible that the near-death experience is an evolutionary
device to bring about a transformation in all humanity over
a period of years ... By transforming ourselves we transform
the world around us, and so, by stages, the whole future of
humanity. (Dr. Ken
Each person's Higher Self is connected
to each other to form a single matrix around the planet which
is called the Higher Self matrix. It a sacred circle of human
souls that exists within everyone. It is a direct connection
to God that makes us all one being. (Mellen-Thomas
A cosmic matrix of rainbow light exists
around the Earth. This matrix provides souls with a number of
earthly destinies from which to choose from. Then, before we
are born into the world, we are required to forget these memories.
Everyone has a light connection to their
Higher Self which is an extension of our lives. Everyone is
interconnected, forming a light grid. We are all one. Our oneness
is interconnected by love and this love is connected to the
grid. Our love connection to each other is available for us
to access. (Linda
Everything is united by a transparent
net, or web, and each thread shines with great radiance. Everything
pulses with the same luminosity a magnificent light of unparalleled
Within the light, I knew that everyone
and everything is connected to the light. God is in everyone,
always and forever. Within the light is the cure for all diseases.
(Dr. Dianne Morrissey)
Humans are actually different aspects
of the same being. This being consists of love - the kind of
love that cures, heals and regenerates. This is the core of
our being. We are all beautiful in our essence, our core. We
are very beautiful creations. (Mellen-Thomas
We all have the innate ability to heal
ourselves, if only we have the desire and determination to enable
this gift. Life has meaning and we are all connected. It is
in finding those connections that we find the secret to good
health and a long life. (Dr.
Everyone's gain or loss affects everyone
else to some degree because we are all connected. (Dr.
We are all connected and we know each other. All things are
of the LOVING light. (Kathy
We are all collectively bonded to each other while on Earth,
united in this one supreme purpose: to learn to love one another.
5. Humanity as a Fractal of God and the
Humans are really children of the cosmos
- not just children of this world. The deeper part of us travels
the entire universe and we chose to dwell in this solar system.
We affect each other because we are all a part of each other.
We affect all parts of the universe because all parts of creation
interweave and interrelate with all other parts. (Dr.
The fact that we are here on Earth, shows that we are on the
path to developing an individual consciousness that is part
of the group consciousness of humanity. There are racial personality
clusters, national personality clusters, municipal personality
clusters, family personality clusters. Our individual identity
is evolving like branches of a fractal. This is the group soul
exploring in our individuality. (Mellen-Thomas
So the problems of individuals, groups, races, and nations,
are dealt with from one lifetime to the next through a person's
free will until they are solved. Then the soul is free to move
on to other worlds, other solar systems, other universes, and
other dimensions. (Edgar
No matter who we are, we are all joined under one God. Our souls
are all one. All living things in the universe are connected
to one another. (May
There is a hierarchy in the universe that is dedicated to preserving
the harmony of the universe. Humans are an integral part of
this harmony. (David
We are multi-dimensional beings. We can access our other dimensions
through lucid dreaming. This universe is God's dream. (Mellen-Thomas
The solar system we live in is our larger, local body. This
is our local body and we are much bigger than we imagine. The
solar system is our body. The Earth is this great created being
that we are, and we are the part of it that knows that it is.
The Earth, the sun, the moon, the darkness, the light, the planets,
and all forms of life plants, rocks, animals, people are interconnected;
they come from the same source of light. (Josiane
Everyone is influenced by their body and, in many ways, the
influence of the body determines a person's level of spiritual
development. Our body is a temple for the divine spirit. We
can find God within us by awakening the spiritual centers of
our body to higher spiritual dimensions and realms. (Edgar
The spiritual centers within our bodies are known by science
to be the endocrine glands (also known in the East as "chakras")
which are the emotional and motivational centers of the body.
They serve as points of contact between the spirit and the body
and are the transformers of the divine spirit into physical
consciousness and manifestation. Our endocrine glands are the
pituitary, the pineal, the thyroid, the thymus, the adrenals,
the lyden, and the gonads. (Edgar
Through our spiritual centers, our spiritual force finds a means
It is through these spiritual centers
that the physical, mental and spiritual forces all come together.
They are the organs of perception through which
we can become aware of the spirit realms in the same way that
our five senses are organs of perception of the physical realm.
These spiritual centers with us are influenced by astrological
forces that represent and correspond to the spirit realms. The
highest spirit realm we can inhabit after death is determined
by the highest spiritual center activated within our body by
the spiritual force within. (Edgar
The following is a list of the human body's spiritual centers,
their location on the body, the astrological influence on them,
and their corresponding connection to afterlife realms. (Edgar
6. Humanity's Imperfect Nature
There is no evil in any
human soul. We seek love to sustain us and it is the lack of
love that distorts people. We were designed by God to self-correct,
just like the rest of the universe. No one is lost because everyone
is already "saved". (Mellen-Thomas
Howard Storm was given the
following insights from beings of light after his life review
when he was fearful of returning to Earth life and afraid he
would make mistakes again: Mistakes are an acceptable part of
being human. We are here to make all the mistakes we want because
it is through our mistakes that we learn. As long as we try
to do what we know to be right, we will be on the right path.
If we make a mistake, we should fully recognize it as a mistake,
then put it behind us and simply try not to make the same mistake
again. The important thing is to try our best, keep our standards
of goodness and truth, and not compromise them to win people's
approval. God loves us just the way we are, mistakes and all.
When we make a mistake, we should ask for forgiveness. After
that, it would be an insult if we don't accept that we are forgiven.
We shouldn't continue going around with a sense of guilt, and
we should try not to repeat our mistakes. We should learn from
our mistakes. God wants us to do what we want to do. That means
making choices - and there isn't necessarily any right choice.
There are a spectrum of possibilities, and we should make the
best choice from those possibilities. If we do that, we will
receive help from the Other Side. (Rev.
God knew we would make mistakes.
Life is all about mistakes. It is constant change and growth.
Our greatest challenges in life will one day be known to us
as our greatest teachers. (Betty
Humanity saves, redeems
and heals themselves. We always have and we always will. (Mellen-Thomas
The more we exercised our
individual consciousness and free will for self-interest, self-gratification,
self-glorification, and self-consciousness, the more we heightened
our sense of self apart from the Whole. (Edgar
The greatest enemy we can
face is ourselves. (George
The conquering of self is
truly greater than were one to conquer many worlds. (Edgar
7. Humanity's Divine Nature
Within every human being is perfect love.
That is our core - this love, this perfection, this God-ness.
God is within us and we are an inseparable part of God. We are
perfect love as a creation of God. We and God are one - Creator
and created. (Linda
We must stop trying to become God because God is becoming us.
Humans are the true essence of God. We are God creating God.
God lives within us and through us. God experiences it all,
right along with us. (Sherry
We were conceived in love spiritually, and love is the center
of our beings. It is the energy of our souls, the spark of our
divine nature. Being made of love, we cleave to it and seek
it in all that we do. When we do not have it, or when we have
lost it, we grieve. Its presence or absence colors our every
action. It is life. It is happiness. It is salvation itself.
We are the human part of God. (Mellen-Thomas
The human soul has the same power as God. We have exactly the
same intensive power as God. We have the same potential as God
within the human condition. The oneness of the Whole, or the
wholeness of the One, being God, is ultimately powerful and
unconditional love. (Thomas
God expanding through us. (Mellen-Thomas
We call ourselves children of God and co-creators made in the
image of God. But it would be closer to the truth if we called
ourselves extensions of God or thoughts in the Mind of God.
(Dr. PMH Atwater)
We are an individualized portion of God who has attained a perfect
oneness with God - which is also our goal. (Arthur
God is exploring Self through us in an infinite Dance of Life
by every way imaginable, in an ongoing exploration through every
one of us, through every piece of hair on our head, through
every leaf on every tree, through every atom. (Mellen-Thomas
8. Humanity's Divine Freedom of Will
The greatest gift
we were ever given was the free will to create our own reality
and experience the biggest, grandest version of ourselves. (Sherry
God made a promise not to intervene in
our lives unless asked. (Betty
God does nothing to curb human freedom.
However humans act, it is within God's reality. By whatever
path, humans return to God. (Edgar
We are supposed to do whatever we want
to do. That means making choices where there isn't necessarily
any right choice. There exists a spectrum of possibilities,
and we should make the best choice we can from these possibilities.
If we do that, we will receive help from above. (Rev.
An important purpose for mortality is to
help us learn to recognize and to choose the positive even though
the negative more fully surrounds us. We make this choice consciously
or unconsciously in every moment of the day, and these millions
of tiny choices create the foundation of our identity. We are
what we think. We are what we say, what we do, what we fill
our lives with. Ultimately, every being creates himself by these
countless, crucial choices. (Betty
The freedom of one person is enough to
change the whole universe. (David
Everyone's life is shaped to some extent
by their karma. But karma is not greater than free will because
with free will, anything is possible. (Edgar
Our ability to accept truth, to live by
it, governs our progress in the spirit, and it determines the
degree of light we possess. Nobody forces light and truth upon
us, and nobody takes it away unless we let them. (RaNelle
9. Humanity's Struggle with Imperfection
The hell fire of
purification mentioned in many traditions is symbolic of the
divine energy that dwells within the seven chakras of human
beings. The struggle between our higher and lower selves grows
until finally the destructive elements are completely overcome.
Our body is constantly
in opposition to our spirit. The flesh is weak but persistent.
Although the spirit must battle constantly to overcome the flesh,
and this battle strengthens the spirit's influence over the
In order to return
to God we have to come to ourselves and realize that our lower
nature is leading us down the road of materialism and of living
only for ourselves. This causes us to turn away from God and
our divine destiny. This caused us to forget who we are and
it caused our spiritual death. (Dr.
Our Father in Heaven
created man in his own image -- which is that of a perfect and
multifaceted man. Women, too, are in the image of God and are
multifaceted. Women's bodies are co-creators of mortal life,
and this makes us Godlike in a literal sense. In heaven, women
and men are perfectly balanced in their roles and are equal.
Standing side by side, they are perfect complements of each
During my experience,
I learned that there are two parts to every person. They can
be described in various ways: male and female, intellectual
and emotional, protective and nurturing, right brain and left
brain. Often we go through life being one way or the other,
but we can learn to balance both parts. Being off balance, too
far one way or the other, keeps the spirit away from where it
needs to be to achieve its greatest growth. (Betty
10. Humanity's Thoughts are as Deeds
Our individual actions and
thoughts make an impact on the Universal Mind - the Whole. (Edgar
The small inner voice in
our thoughts is the voice of God. (Sandra
God is aware of the consciousness
of every person. (Edgar
Day by day we are building
for eternity, every gentle word, every generous thought, every
unselfish deed will become a pillar of eternal beauty in the
life to come. (Rebecca
Our thoughts in this world
become real things in the spirit world. (Edgar
There is power in our thoughts. We create
our own surroundings by the thoughts we think. Physically, this
may take a period of time, but spiritually it is instantaneous.
If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them
more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words,
we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our
thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and our own
strengths. Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts. (Betty
Truth comes to us in stages. As we assimilate
and understand a layer, the next layer is peeled away for us
to ruminate. (Lauren
We are given knowledge only as we are
ready to receive it. (Betty
We must be ready to accept the possibility
that there is a limitless range of awareness that can expand
beyond our egos and range of everything we have learned, beyond
your notions of space and time, beyond the differences which
usually separate people from each other and from the world around
them. (Dr. Timothy Leary)
We are made up of three different levels
of consciousness: mind, soul and spirit. Our conscious mind
is our personality. Our subconscious mind is our soul. Our superconscious
mind is our spirit. When we "awaken" our superconscious mind,
we attain at-one-ment with God. (Edgar
