In the News: Scientists Found That The Soul Doesn’t Die – It Goes Back To The Universe


  A fascinating study-
   The mystery of death is not to be told. It is something to be experienced. We all know one thing for sure: we are all going to die one day. And when we do die, we may not get the opportunity to come back and explain our experience.
   Many religions believe in life after death. It is said the soul goes out of the body to live a new life in the spiritual realm. A wicked person is sent to hell to be tormented by a blazing fire, while a righteous person is sent to heaven to live an eternal and joyful life.
However, scientists believe that this religious interpretation of death is just a mythology. Some researchers have therefore devoted themselves to unraveling this mystery. The starting point: establish that there is some sort of life after death.
   At the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom, researchers have confirmed in a new study that there is indeed life after death. The study has been published in the online journal Resuscitation.
   The study is said to be the largest ever medical study into near-death and out-of-body experiences. The study revealed that some awareness may continue even after the brain has shut down completely. A human being is pronounced clinically dead if the heart stops beating and the brain shuts down. The condition can also be called cardiac arrest.

    According to the researchers, they spent four years examining more than 2,000 people who suffered cardiac arrests at 15 hospitals in the United Kingdom, the United States and Austria. They found that nearly 40 percent of people who survived their resuscitation, described some kind of awareness during the time when they were clinically dead.
   Of the 2,060 cardiac arrest patients studied, 330 survived and of 140 surveyed, 39 percent said they had experienced some kind of awareness while being resuscitated. Although many of them could not recall specific details, some themes emerged. One in five said they had felt an unusual sense of peacefulness, while nearly one third said time had slowed down or speeded up.
Some recalled seeing a bright light; a golden flash or the Sun shining. Others recounted feelings of fear, drowning or being dragged through deep water, 13 percent said they had felt separated from their bodies, and the same number said their senses had been heightened.

A 57-year-old man from Southampton, who was pronounced dead for three minutes, said he left his body entirely, watching his resuscitation from the corner of the room. He was able to accurately recount the actions of the nursing staff and the sound of the machines used in his resuscitation process.
Lead researcher of the study, Dr Sam Parnia said the study accurately revealed that people experience some awareness after death.
Dr Parnia was quoted as saying: “We know the brain can’t function when the heart has stopped beating. But in this case, conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating, even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped. The man described everything that had happened in the room, but importantly, he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals. So we could time how long the experience lasted for. He seemed very credible and everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened.”
Dr Parnia also added that many more people may have experiences when they are close to death, but the drugs or sedatives used in the process of resuscitation may stop them remembering.
“Estimates have suggested that millions of people have had vivid experiences in relation to death but the scientific evidence has been ambiguous at best. Many people have assumed that these were hallucinations or illusions but they do seem to corresponded to actual events. And a higher proportion of people may have vivid death experiences, but do not recall them due to the effects of brain injury or sedative drugs on memory circuits. These experiences warrant further investigation,” Dr Parnia said.
Commenting on the study, the editor-in-chief of the journal Resuscitation, Dr Jerry Nolan said Dr Parnia and his colleagues are to be congratulated on the completion of a fascinating study that will open the door to more extensive research into what happens when we die.

Our Annapolis Haunted Encounters Part 2: The Ghostly Woman Outside

When we visited Annapolis on April 2, we walked around and walked into a couple of places that turned out to be haunted. In Part 2 of Our Annapolis Haunted Encounters, you'll meet: The Ghostly Woman Outside.
When we visited Annapolis on April 2, we walked around and walked into a couple of places that
turned out to be haunted. In Part 2 of Our Annapolis Haunted Encounters, you'll meet: The Ghostly Woman Outside.
Warehouse sign
  I've sensed a woman outside of one of the old buildings before, and she continued to stand on the southeastern corner of a white building known as the Waterfront Warehouse. She didn't work in the warehouse in the early 1800s, but she was murdered outside of it by a man with long curly hair (so I (Rob) sensed). It's really weird to get these images when you're just standing outside on a sidewalk in front of a building, but after proving them for many years, you go with it and trust it.
   The Waterfront Warehouse is on the corner of "Market Space" and Pinkney Street" in downtown old Annapolis, about 2 blocks from the dock.
Historic display in the warehouse 
Stairway to the 2nd floor of the warehouse
  What's interesting is that the warehouse itself is not haunted. The ghostly woman, who wears a bonnet and a shawl of sorts, stands outside in front of the right corner. That's where she was murdered by a vagabond who apparently came off of one of the ships at night, and was seeking pleasure (that she refused to give) and money, which she didn't have, so he took her life.

Tarot Tuesday: The Six of Cups

Here's this week's Tarot lesson from my friend Joy Andreasen of Whispers of Joy: The Six of Cups

Today your focus may be on children or someone may show up from the past that you reconnect with in some way. Having childlike joy and faith in the benevolence of the Universe is always a good idea. Our past is filled with people who made an important impact on our lives. Today as you think about your life, give thanks for those people who impacted your life in some way and helped change your life and bring you to where you are today.

Our Annapolis Haunted Encounters Part 1: Ghost Shot in the Eye

In today's blog we're going to take you to a new shop that opened in downtown Annapolis where we
both had a weird experience. There's a shop on the corner of Market Street (I can't see the cross street on the sign and don't remember it) across from the State House. There was something weird going on in that shop.  
  The shop is filled with art work, pottery, jewelry, paintings and other decorative things. There are many nice things within, and some strange things, too. The shop was apparently the location of a former florist as there are 4 large freezer cases (or they used to be) that now act as a showcase for artwork.
  It was the basement, however, where things happened. Tom sensed a man crouching in the northeast corner of the basement, and it was there that I had a very strong pain in my left eye. I (Rob)  realized that the man (ghost) was either stabbed, shot or punched in the eye. It was likely that he was shot or stabbed since he was dead, and died in that building. He still haunts it today. It's unknown what his name is, or what he was doing there, but it seems to me that it was either a tavern or a brothel in the late 1700s.
   Regardless, there's a ghost in that shop, and we wonder what strange things happen in there. Next time we visit the city, I'll have to ask if they have experiences.

Tarot Tuesday: The King of Pentacles

Here's this week's Tarot lesson from my friend Joy Andreasen of Whispers of Joy: The King of Pentacles.

Abundance means different things to different people. Abundance is not just money. The feeling of abundance is all about what makes life joyful for you. If you are a millionaire but are miserable, then you are not abundant. Every day, do something that brings you joy. Never make a decision based upon how much money you will make. Make it based upon how much joy you will derive from life. Obviously we all need money to live, but joy is what makes us truly rich. Just for today, think of abundance as what gives you joy, and work towards doing that more often.
