Life after death: Man believes he saw angels and tells of what it is like to die

Whether there is life after death remains a mystery to scientists, but one man believes he has the answer. After his colon burst, a man named Jamie suffered life-threatening injuries. While surgeons were attempting to save Jamie’s life, he believes he saw the afterlife.

He said that he was greeted by angels in a heavenly realm who gave him guidance on his life.

Jamie wrote on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation: “I was in a beautiful space that was filled with light.

“A male angel, whom I cannot describe other than as a being of light, was talking calmly to me.

“He told me that everything was going to be all right.

“I was going to come through this emergency and go on to live a very long and pleasant life.

“He said I would have little things happen as they do in life, but nothing really bad would happen to me.

“I would have mostly peace and much joy in my life. It was the most peaceful experience I have ever had.

“I was told that I had nothing to be afraid of and everything to live for.”

While Jamie believes his experience is proof of the afterlife, researchers state the vivid vision is actually associated with a surge in brain activity as one dies.

Researchers from the University of Michigan came to this conclusion after they clinically induced cardiac arrest in rats while simultaneously monitoring their brain activity.

They found a huge surge in brain activity in the final 30 seconds of the rodents’ life.

Jimo Borjigin, PhD, associate professor of molecular and integrative physiology and associate professor of neurology, said: “This study, performed in animals, is the first dealing with what happens to the neurophysiological state of the dying brain.

“We reasoned that if near-death experience stems from brain activity, neural correlates of consciousness should be identifiable in humans or animals even after the cessation of cerebral blood flow.”

Essentially, if the brain is more active, one might have vivid visions, leading them to believe they had seen the afterlife.

Dr Borjigin added: “The prediction that we would find some signs of conscious activity in the brain during cardiac arrest was confirmed with the data.”
