To Heaven and Back: A Doctor’s Extraordinary Account of Her Death, Heaven, Angels, and Life Again: A True Story
Mary Neal’s life was saved by a miracle during her Near Death Experience. In her book, To Heaven and Back, Mary tells how the miracles were not limited to just her. A number of other people who were trying to save her also experienced miracles. Mary was running some river rapids, when while cascading down a waterfall, her kayak became pinned at the bottom and she was completely submerged under a strong river current. Her companions “could see her helmet, but there was about four feet of deep, strong current between the ledge upon which they were standing and her. The water was too deep and fast moving for anyone to stand in it, and the gap was too wide to step across or span.” “Again and again they were unsuccessful in their attempts to reach her…” Then “They looked down and a dry rock suddenly appeared in the middle of the water flow that separated them from her. They were able to step onto this rock and use it as a platform from which they could reach her boat.” Much later after they had retrieved Mary, her companions returned to the scene of the accident and “tried to recover the two kayaks that were still trapped at the bottom of the waterfall. The rock upon which they had been standing when they fished her out of the water was gone.
This is only one example of some of Mary’s miracles that happened during her Near Death Experience.
Mary not only had an encounter with a divine being when she died but continued to have further encounters during her recovery.
Mary wrote this book many years after the events, and she has been able to give us many examples of how her new faith was tested in the years after the NDE, and this makes for a very compelling story. I was drawn into the book and really felt for the challenges that life has given Mary.
I thoroughly recommend this book as a great read, another example of modern miracles, and an extremely powerful story about the Afterlife.
Here is a really interesting article on Death from an author of the Ageless Wisdom compilation book “Death: The Great Adventure”. A compilation from the Alice Baily books. Below is the 1st of 3 videos exploring the same subject.
I find the concept of Intelligent Design to be wonderful support of my other discoveries with all the spiritual reading I am doing.
I Read Michael’s first Book Darwin’s Black Box in June 2016, This was my first introduction to Intelligent Design, and I then went and read a number of other books which support the idea of Intelligent Design.
If you, like me, read lots about Near Death Experiences, you could easily come to the conclusion that this is a new modern phenomenon, since the publication of Raymond Moody’s book Life after Life in 1975. In this great anthology “In Times of War: Messages of Wisdom from Soldiers in the Afterlife’ we hear from a number of ordinary soldiers who have experienced or who are in the afterlife and communicate with us that after death on the battle field, they are still very much alive. Stories from one of the earliest near-death experiencers, Er written in 360 BC, through stories from WW I & II and Vietnam.
Jeff O’Driscoll was in the ER when Jeff Olsen was brought in after his car accident. Jeff O’Driscoll had a Near-Life Experience and saw Jeff Olsen’s, recently deceased wife, Tamara’s spirit, following her husband. In this remarkable book Jeff O’Driscoll may have coined the term Near-Life Experience, as he shares with us a number of such events from over his 25 years in the emergency department.
Jeff Olsen was in a car crash in which he lost his wife and youngest son. At the time of the accident, he died, had a NDE and saw his dead wife’s soul. His wife encouraged him to go back for his older son. This book is part autobiographical, so you need to get through those details before you get to the NDE part of the story, it is good setup information.
One of the main reasons for this website is for me to share books I have found useful in understanding the universe from a spiritual perspective.
I first was introduced to the teachings of the Ageless Wisdom in 2000 or 2001. Since then I have become a student of the Ageless Wisdom studying these 24 books off and on for the last 18 years or so. (I say off and on because during the middle of the 18 years, I stopped studying these books for a number of years and have only re-started 3 years ago.)
Proof of Life is a work of Fiction which will be available for purchase May 7th 2019. I was privileged to have an advance PDF copy of the book to read in exchange for a review on Amazon. Since I am not able to review on Amazon yet below is my review.
