Dr Peter Fenwick ‘Consciousness and Dying’ Interview by Iain McNay [video]_Featured_, Dying and Near Death, Videos Saturday, April 21st, 2012
Author of several books including ‘The Art Of Dying,’ ‘The Truth In The Light’ and ‘The Hidden Door’ neuro-psychiatrist Peter Fenwick talks about his research into End of Life Experiences and deathbed phenomena and what these mean in the greater picture of who we really are.
- 10 percent of people who have cardiac arrest have a near death experience
- Many people will have a premonition that they are going to die within two years before they die.
- Or, they will be visited by a dead relative.
- Death-bed visions are the next step. This prepares person who is going to die for death.
- Common visions: relatives and spiritual figures tell the dying person that they will be back to pick them up. Sometimes they even tell the dying person the date that they will die.
- The dying person can negotiate the postponement of their death by a little. For example, the dying person can ask for a postponement until after a close friend or relative arrives.
- The next thing that happens for some that are dying is that they go into another reality and come back. They go to an area that is full of love, light, spiritual beings, and relatives. It’s very much like a near-death experience.
- Paralyzed people are sometimes able to sit up and Alzheimer’s patients sometime regain their memory for periods of time just before death.
- The dying person will sometimes visit someone they are emotionally attached to. Space and time are no factor.
- Dying person sees a mirage, sparks, and radiant light.
- As far as dying is concerned, clearly consciousness is something special in the way that consciousness fragments and leaves the body.
- Advice: if you can, be with your loved ones when they die. Take your cues from them.
