Validating Your Spiritual Experience

Recently I’ve been visiting the website, NHNE – Near Death Experience Network, at www.nhneneardeath.ning.com , and watching the wonderful videos there. Hundreds of people are now sharing their stories of miraculous recovery and spiritual renewal in a public format that wasn’t possible years ago. This is a great departure from the cloak of secrecy or shame that surrounded these experiences in the past, where people were afraid to come forward and would stay silent for fear of ridicule, job loss, or worse.

Many years ago I, too, had what they now call an “STE,” or Spiritual Transformative Experience. Like others, I only told my mother and a few close friends at the time. In my case, I was fortunate in that it was not preceeded by an accident or life threatening illness, instead it came seemingly out of nowhere one evening. Just like a Near Death Experience, I was enveloped in light, spoke with guides, and felt the ecstatic bliss of unconditional love. At the time, there was no name for this phenomena, other than an “awakening,” or perhaps “kundalini rising.” All I knew was that I returned from the experience changed, and over a period of years became aware of a new purpose to my life.

Now it seems hundreds of thousands of people are having this experience, as documented by websites such as this, and bestsellers by Raymond Moody, Eben Alexander, Steve Taylor, and Anita Moorjani. I find it tremendously validating to know that others have been transformed in the same manner as I, and that it is acceptable now to talk about these events. Over the years I have made it my mission to educate others about the mystical worlds, and now I am writing a book detailing a lifetime of psychic and spiritual experiences (shared in part with my late mother, the gifted clairvoyant, Maureen Treanor) that I hope others will find helpful. As I have learned over the years, sharing our stories is how we can truly validate our spiritual experiences and help others to open the door to their own ‘awakening.’

Near Death Experiences Entering the Mainstream News

| by Staff

As recently featured on Fox News, Near Death Experiences have clearly entered the mainstream and reached the public awareness. One of the most fascinating examples of an NDE is that of New York resident Dr. Tony Cicoria. Cicoria is a practicing orthopedic surgeon, and is Chief of the Medical Staff and Chief of Orthopedics at Chenango Memorial Hospital. In 1994, when Tony Cicoria was 42 years old, he was struck by lightning near Albany while using a public telephone. He was about a foot away when a rogue bolt of lightning struck. He recalled seeing his own body on the ground surrounded by a bluish-white light.
