Whether there is an afterlife is one of life’s greatest mysteries. However, one woman believes she has the conclusive answer after she temporarily died. A person by the name of Star was attacked in her own home and was left fighting for her life.
Before paramedics could arrive at the scene, Star temporarily died which resulted in a heavenly vision.
In her brief moment of clinical death – which is the cessation of the heart or breathing – Star believes she met God.
Star wrote on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation: “A pure, brilliant light engulfed me and I no longer had a physical body. But, I still existed?
“I had no eyes to see but I looked at everything around me. I was in the centre of a vast nothingness, but the nothingness was not empty.
“It was completely filled with the presence of the living God.
“There are no words in the English language to describe where I was. I was in the middle of the Glory.
“Then the Lord wrapped me in His Love and held me to His breast.
“I was filled to every fibre of my being with His peace that passes all understanding. I felt the love He had for me.”
“From a biomedical perspective, this hope might help the body fight illnesses, improve the chances of spontaneous remissions or allow the illness to run its course, it’s more equanimity for the person involved.
“But even if there is no biological change, a focus on the possibility of immortality can help some individuals disidentify from their bodily pain and develop a more peaceful relationship with their experience as their suffering.
“When this happens, improbable beliefs in an immortal body or soul can be seen as entirely rational and pragmatic even.
“However, when beliefs about immortality exclude attention to the biological physical body, it can have serious negative effects on health, and even cause untimely deaths.
“So, what we believe about death and our ideas of enteral life can really make a difference as to how we live, how we handle pain and suffering and experience being alive here and now.”
