Do the dead greet the dying? By David Kessler, Oprah.com






For those that experience it, a deathbed vision can be a miracle that carries a person though the transition of death.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • It's common for the dying to have visions, many times of someone who is already dead
  • The visions that people experience at the end of life are extremely similar
  • Visions tend to occur hours to weeks before death
  • There's no point in telling your dying relative you think he ore she is hallucinating
(OPRAH.com) -- Throughout my years of working with the dying and the bereaved, I have noticed commonly shared experiences that remain beyond our ability to explain and fully understand. The first are visions.
As the dying see less of this world, some people appear to begin looking into the world to come. It's not unusual for the dying to have visions, often of someone who has already passed on. Your loved one may tell you that his deceased father visited him last night, or your loved one might speak to his mom as if she were there in the room at that time.
It was almost 15 years ago that I was sitting at the bedside of my teacher, Elisabeth K├╝bler Ross', when she turned to me and asked, "What do you think about the deceased visiting those on their deathbeds to greet them?"

TIBETAN BOOK OF THE DEAD

The Tibetans have mapped out the exact process that the soul goes through in separating from its human container and moving into the light. You will have to double click on this video to take you directly to the YouTube site. There, you can watch the whole series of segments that make up the complete video. (You Tube only can make clips of less tha 10 minutes, so the video is broken into a series of short segments. This system is a lot better than being interrupted by TV commercials.) .
