Intense emotions - near-death experiences The following NDE accounts involve experiencers preferring, for one reason or another, to return to this lower physical realm rather than experience the bliss of higher realms. "I reached the point in the rapture of it all where I thought to myself suddenly, "I wonder how much more of this I can stand before I shatter?" With that thought, the light began to recede. So, the universe will not let us shatter. We cannot take in more of this bliss and joy than we are able to handle at a time." "I felt torn between two desires: wanting to go into the light and wanting to touch something tangible and retain my connection with all that was physical. "In my NDE I was also shown that there are many souls in heaven who are more than willing to come to this place regardless of the state it is in." "At a time when I felt the closest to accepting my death, I experienced a resurge of sorrow and pain, longing for my son, for my life. "Then I made the decision to come back to Earth.

Near-death experience Characteristics[edit] Researchers have identified the common elements that define near-death experiences.[24] Bruce Greyson argues that the general features of the experience include impressions of being outside one's physical body, visions of deceased relatives and religious figures, and transcendence of egotic and spatiotemporal boundaries.[25] Many different elements have been reported, though the exact elements tend to correspond with the cultural, philosophical, or religious beliefs of the person experiencing it: The traits of a classic NDE are as follows: The notice of unpleasant sound or noise (claimed by R. PeaceBody separationEntering darknessSeeing the lightEntering the light He stated that 60% experienced stage 1 (feelings of peace and contentment), but only 10% experienced stage 5 ("entering the light").[30] The distressing aspects of some NDEs are discussed more closely by Greyson and Bush.[33] Cultural variances[edit] NDE variants[edit] Three patterns of distressing NDEs.

Peyote on the Brain Peyote on the Brain Is the Secret to Alcoholism and Other Addictions Locked Up in the Hallucinogenic Drugs? John HorganDiscover Magazine February 2003 Even with several tablespoons of peyote in me, by 3 in the morning I'm fading. For almost six hours I have been sitting in a tepee in the Navajo Nation, the largest Indian reservation in the United States, with 20 Navajo men, women, and children. A barrelchested man wearing a checked shirt and cowboy boots stands over the cedarwood fire and murmurs a prayer in Dine, the Navajo language. My guide to the etiquette of peyote ceremonies is John Halpern, a 34-year-old psychiatrist from Harvard Medical School. Coined in 1956 from the Greek roots for "mind revealing," the term psychedelic refers to the broad range of drugs that include peyote, LSD, and psilocybin, the primary active ingredient in so-called magic mushrooms. The power of these ceremonies, Halpern tells me later, is only partly pharmacological.

The 20 Things You Need To Let Go To Be Happy Everyone has one common goal in life: to achieve true happiness. The biggest factor holding us back from achieving our dreams is, simply and sadly, our own selves. We put limitations on ourselves everyday, whether intentionally or unintentionally. There are so many ways we can alleviate these restraints. Remember, life can either be something you embrace or something you hide from. Let’s take a look at the things you need to let go of in order to become a happier person. 1. Who gives a sh*t what other people think? 2. Anger will eat at you from the inside. “Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.” 3. There is only one person’s opinion you should be concerned with when it comes to your body and that is you. 4. There is no such thing as a perfect partner, so throw your checklist out the window. “He’s not perfect. 5. Just like there is no perfect partner, there is also not a perfect life. 6. 7. 8. Make no time for excuses. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17.

Near-Death Experiences: 30 Years of Research – Part 1 | Beyond Science | Science DURHAM, N.C.—Grandma was just resuscitated. She wakes up and tells you a bizarre story of coming out of her body and going to heaven. Has she developed psychosis? Was her brain damaged from the lack of oxygen? After over 30 years of research, scientists have concluded that this is not the case. The phenomenon was coined near-death experiences (NDEs) in the 1975 book “Life After Life” by Raymond Moody, M.D. and Ph.D. in philosophy and psychology. Examples of NDEs include experiencing a change in one’s perception and way of thinking, feeling peace or calmness, gaining extrasensory perception (ESP), going through a review of one’s life and seeing the effects of one’s actions on others, a feeling of leaving the body, seeing deceased people and other beings such as angels, and feeling as if one has entered another dimension. NDEs are encountered by people of all backgrounds, and most studies find the prevalence of NDEs to be 10–20 percent of people who have come close to death.

The God Chemical: Brain Chemistry And Mysticism Human Resonance Near-Death Experiences Explained? Near-death experiences are tricks of the mind triggered by an overload of carbon dioxide in the bloodstream, a new study suggests. Many people who have recovered from life-threatening injuries have said they experienced their lives flashing before their eyes, saw bright lights, left their bodies, or encountered angels or dead loved ones. In the new study, researchers investigated whether different levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide—the main blood gases—play a role in the mysterious phenomenon. The team studied 52 heart attack patients who had been admitted to three major hospitals and were eventually resuscitated. Eleven of the patients reported near-death experiences. During cardiac arrest and resuscitation, blood gases such as CO2 rise or fall because of the lack of circulation and breathing. (Related: "Creepy 'Shadow Person' Effect Conjured by Brain Shocks.")

Damage ! Experience Vaults: Inhalants - Glue - Citation: William. "Passing the Course: An Experience with Inhalants - Glue (ID 57668)". Jun 9, 2007. [Erowid Warning: Our understanding of the literature is that there is no such thing as safe use of volatile solvents, aerosols and other street inhalants : their psychoactive effects are inseparable from nerve and organ damage. We have chosen to include these reports to help document the real world use of inhalants, but their inclusion is not intended to imply that they are anything but dangerous.] I have written a story about glue sniffing and out of body experiences, which is an account of the various sensations during a four-year period in my life. My interest in schoolwork dwindled during the first two terms of the second year. I had known of the term glue sniffing, but that was the extent of my knowledge. It was decided the beach would be the best spot for its use, with least disturbances. Sitting there a strange sensation began to come over me.
