Dr. Pamela Kircher, author of “Love Is The Link“, had this to say about Dr. Liz Dale’s (www.lizdale.org) research, her book “Crossing Over and Coming Home,” and about NDEs in the LGBTQ community: “People in the gay community have been so close to death on so may occasions since the onslaught of the AlDS epidemic that they hare become the natural experts on NDEs in our time. Because they not only have had NDEs themselves, but are also surrounded by other people who had had NDEs. These communities are becoming a prototype of what communities might be. We are acutely aware of our own mortality and live from the values learned in an NDE. Dr. Liz Dale’s compilation of NDE stories from the gay community is a welcome and timely addition to the NDE literature. Her research into NDEs in the gay community is ground-breaking.” Dr. P.M.H. Atwater (Hon), author of “A Manual For Developing Humans,” agrees: “A wonderful affirmation of the power aid meaning near-death states can have on the experiencer. For the individual, though, it is especially important that a comfortable climate exists for the sharing of their stories Since no one has done that for the gay community, Liz Dale is to be commended for her sensitivity in this regard.” The webmaster of this website, Kevin Williams, B.Sc., who has a gay younger brother, heartily agrees.
1. An NDE Analysis of Homosexuality
Countless near-death experiences describe the unconditional love that God has for everyone which, of course, includes gays and lesbians. Just the fact that God created so many homosexuals (approximately 10% of the population) should be enough proof for any reasonable person that this is true. Unfortunately, there are many people who, out of ignorance, fear, and bigotry, persecute LGBTQ people by treating them as second class citizens.
The following insights comes from near-death testimonies concerning such bigotry. These insights show how homosexuality is just as natural as heterosexuality and is certainly not offensive to God as some religious people claim.
Creed, race, gender, and sexual preference have no real meaning to God. No matter who we are, we were all children joined under one God. The only rule is God’s true law “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (P.M.H. Atwater)
Those religions which claim superiority over others, or exclude people for various reasons, go against God’s law that we love one another as we love ourselves. (Sandra Rogers)
God is really only concerned about what is within us, our heart and spirituality, not our sexual preference. The way to heaven is through love for everyone unconditionally. We do not go to heaven by worshiping Jesus, or by believing in his name, or by believing in the cross, or by accepting him as our Savior. We grow to heaven by creating heaven within us by practicing the unconditional love which Jesus had for everyone no matter who they are. (Kevin Williams’ research)
There is no one religion just as there is no “chosen” people or person. We are all children of God in the sense that we are all souls of God’s creation. What counts is what comes from the heart, not what one professes to believe. The most difficult thing for a person who has been deeply steeped in a particular religious tradition is to realize that the form alone is not what elevates a person; it is the heart. (P.M.H. Atwater)
It also needs to be recognized that not all teachings described as religious are beneficial. Religion which is judgmental, prejudicial, critical, and narrow may impede the spirit’s natural growth. It is love, not religion, which creates spiritual growth. Where religion teaches love, there is growth. Where religion impedes love, there is stagnation. (Nora Spurgin)
“If this world was to ever find out just a small amount of what sexually diverse (gay) people are here to do on this planet, there would never be one single wisecrack or hurtful remark made ever again. Instead there would be great respect!” (Christian Andreason, gay near-death experiencer)
“People who speak disrespectful things about people of this orientation … enact judgment, and do so from a place of unenlightenment, insecurity, ego and socially induced prejudice. Some may use mistranslated scriptures taught to them, not by the Holy Spirit … but by fear-filled human beings. Many will choose to sustain a Divinely unsupported satanic hate-based rage against these children of God, rather than using Love to bring understanding and healing between both peoples. Christ said, ‘The greatest commandment is that we are to love one another! ‘When people sling condemnation, judgment and bitterness at others, they are not practicing the great commandment. They are allowing their Souls to fall into darkness.” (Christian Andreason, gay near-death experiencer)
Christian Andreason continues: “When I got to Heaven, one of the first things I asked was about the very issue of bisexuality, as it had caused me a great deal of concern my whole life. My lady guide walked me to a room that had a large screen in it. On the screen, I saw two forms of Light conjoining with one another in the act of making Love. My guide then asked me to tell her which was the male and which was the female? I said, ‘I dunno!’ She smiled at me and said, ‘It does not matter.’
“She went on to say that the two Lights were what God saw when he looked upon us. She explained that God always sees us as our higher selves and that gender is a very temporary thing that will not be around forever.
“It was further explained to me that God himself is both a Mother essence and a Father essence to us, therefore; God fully understands our attractions for members of similar genders.
“It was told to me (or rather I was reminded) that there are no mistakes in the way each of us were made. God knew what each of us would be challenged and blessed with. We each act according to our heart (or developed Soul center) and as we mature Spiritually, we come up higher each time.
“One other thing I was shown was a couple engaging in activities that focused on Lust rather than Love. My lady guide said that these individuals were in great spiritual duress and bringing upon themselves a life that would present much challenge.
“I saw that their Soul Lights began to dim significantly and there was a dark haze all about them. My lady guide then told me a time would come when these individuals would need to learn to come to God with their sexual selves, so that he could help them to use their sexuality in a more Loving way. More than likely, emotional or mental illness would emerge and help guide them to a more Loving path of expression.
“As I looked upon the figures, I sadly commented that lust was a major factor that involved many gay people. The lady smiled at me and explained that all fall into lust before we fully embrace the Light within ourselves.
“Later the lady also revealed to me that the two dimly beings in spiritual duress … had been a married heterosexual couple. The dark haze was what I call gray or shadow energy. This is a challenging type of essence that coexists with us on the planet. I believe this is what the Bible refers to as demons. These entities’ job unto Creation is to help bring us additional weight and life obstacles which match our non-positive or unloving thoughts. With the weight of their essence on us, our inner Light is blocked. After a period of time where we go stumbling around in the darkness of our lives, we are once again encouraged to return to more Loving thought and action. As soon as we produce enough Light in our Soul from having been Loving, the gray or shadow energy is then popped off of us.
“WHERE THERE IS LIGHT, DARKNESS CANNOT REMAIN! However, we must maintain Loving action and thinking because if we return to a less positive way of being, these entities return bringing reinforcements with them. When this happens it is time to do spiritual warfare!” (Christian Andreason, gay near-death experiencer)
2. A Scientific Analysis of Homosexuality
According to the late Dr. Ian Stevenson, the foremost reincarnation researcher, many of children with past-life memories show abilities or talents they had in their previous lives. Dr. Stevenson’s research led him to conclude that homosexuality is a natural human trait resulting from the reincarnation of a person of one gender as a person of the opposite gender. Such people must adjust to their new gender and sexuality at an early age. Former girls who are reborn as boys may wish to dress as girls or prefer to play with girls rather than boys. Former boys who are reborn as girls may wish to dress as boys or prefer to play with boys rather than girls. Former men who are reborn as women will be attracted to women and will therefore be lesbian. Former women who are reborn as men will be attracted to men and will therefore be gay. (Dr. Ian Stevenson)
3. Kevin Williams’ NDE Analysis of Homosexuality
Dr. Stevenson’s research supports scientific evidence defining homosexuality as a natural human genetic trait and not a lifestyle of personal choice. Modern medical research has found that the brains of homosexuals are genetically different than heterosexual brains much like male brains are different than female brains. A study by Dr. Simon LaVey reported in Science News, August 31, 1991. Vol. 140, No. 9, page 140 discovered this fact. Such research reveals homosexuality to be a natural process; and therefore, suggests homosexuality is a divinely created process.
Anyone who has grown up on a farm or ranch, as I have, knows that farm animals frequently exhibit homosexual behavior. These facts of nature, and of God, discredits self-righteous religious beliefs that homosexuality is merely a preference – a sin or a lifestyle – which people can easily chose to accept or abandon. Near-death and metaphysical evidence shows people are born the way they are for a higher purpose known to God and our Higher Selves. It also makes logical sense that God creates and loves everyone unconditionally no matter what their sexuality.
And finally, do you think God really cares whether a person prefers a man’s genitals over a woman’s genitals regarding sex? My understanding is God is cares about a person’s “heart” and not so much about their genitals. In fact, there are no genitals in heaven as revealed by Dr. Richard Eby’s OB/GYN’s near-death experience.
