NDE Stories: Atheist Doctor Died & Saw God! with Dr. Eben Alexander

Next Level Soul with Alex Ferrari: A Mind, Body & Soul Podcast

Dr. Eben Alexander spent over 25 years as an academic neurosurgeon, including 15 years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, the Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Over those years he personally dealt with hundreds of patients suffering from severe alterations in their level of consciousness. Many of those patients were rendered comatose by trauma, brain tumors, ruptured aneurysms, infections, or stroke. He thought he had a very good idea of how the brain generates consciousness, mind and spirit.In the predawn hours of November 10, 2008, he was driven into coma by a rare and mysterious bacterial meningo-encephalitis of unknown cause. He spent a week in coma on a ventilator, his prospects for survival diminishing rapidly. On the seventh day, to the surprise of everyone, he started to awaken. Memories of his life had been completely deleted inside of the coma, yet he awoke with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm – more real than this earthly one! His older son advised him to write down everything he could remember about his journey, before he read anything about near-death experiences, physics or cosmology. Six weeks later, he completed his initial recording of his remarkable journey, totaling over 20,000 words in length. Then he started reading, and was astonished by the commonalities between his journey and so many others reported throughout all cultures, continents and millennia. His journey brought key insights to the mind-body discussion and to our human understanding of the fundamental nature of reality. His experience clearly revealed that we are conscious in spite of our brain – that, in fact, consciousness is at the root of all existence.He has been blessed with a complete recovery that is inexplicable from the viewpoint of modern Western medicine.

Synchronicity Melts Materialism, Eben Alexander: EP 264

Connecting with Coincidence 2.0 with Bernard Beitman, MD

Adopted soon after birth, Eben Alexander chose the neurosurgical subspecialty of vascular surgery only to discover that his maternal birth family carried a genetic predisposition to brain aneurysms. This synchronicity coupled with a rich NDE is driving him to help change scientific materialism, especially physicians, into recognizing our profound interconnection in the One Mind. You can pre-order Dr. Beitman's new book Meaningful Coincidences due out in September here! https://www.innertraditions.com/books... Dr Eben Alexander spent 54 years of his life honing a conventional scientific world view, including teaching neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School for 15 years. His profound near-death experience during a weeklong coma due to gram-negative bacterial meningo-encephalitis in November 2008 (in which the medical parameters obviated all but the most rudimentary of conscious experiences) changed his worldview from materialism (brain creates consciousness) to idealism, acknowledging the primacy and unity of consciousness in the universe, with the brain serving as a filter to limit the expression of that primordial mind. He works with scientists around the world to more fully explain these phenomena: https://galileocommission.org and https://scientificandmedical.net. Connecting with Coincidence with Bernard Beitman, MD (CCBB) is now offered as both an audio podcast--anywhere that podcasts are available--and in video format on the Connecting with Coincidence YouTube channel. Please SUBSCRIBE to our channel to be notified when future episodes are posted! Also available, there are 138 archived episodes of the CCBB podcast available, HERE [https://www.spreaker.com/show/dr-bern...] Our host Dr. Bernard Beitman is the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to attempt to systematize the study of coincidences. He is Founding Director of The Coincidence Project. His book, and his Psychology Today blog, are both titled Connecting with Coincidence. He has developed the first valid and reliable scale to measure coincidence sensitivity, and has written and edited coincidence articles for Psychiatric Annals. He is a visiting professor at the University of Virginia and former chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He attended Yale Medical School and completed a psychiatric residency at Stanford. Dr. Beitman has received two national awards for his psychotherapy training program and is internationally known for his research into the relationship between chest pain and panic disorder.

Discover These Life Changing Lessons from the Author of Proof of Heaven | Dr. Eben Alexander

Inspire Nation Show with Michael Sandler

Dr Eben Alexander on his near death experience, the rare disease that left him brain dead for 7 days and his experiences on the other side that were more real than reality itself. It was the ultimate twist of fate that a famous neurosurgeon who taught at Harvard, and would tell patients and students alike that the soul is merely an illusion of the mind, would be struck down with what should have been a fatal brain disease. He spent a week in a coma, brain-dead, with doctors suggesting his wife pull the plug. They gave up on anti-biotics and waited for him to die. But he came back, and with the most incredible near-death experience to share. This is a truly life-changing interview. Here’s a doctor who’s entire life was built around a premise that there is no afterlife. And yet when he returns, he shares a completely different story. If you believe his story, and it’s hard not to, then it completely changes, or affirms, everything we think about life, about death, and where we’re going from here. It can’t help but get you thinking, and quite possibly living your life a different way. This is an incredibly powerful and heartfelt interview that’ll have you on the edge of your seat, and leave you feeling great to be alive! Key Topics: Dr Eben Alexander shares about his experience on the other side while his body battled the extremely rare disease, bacterial meningitis From a dark, gross “Earthworm Eye View Realm” to a brilliantly vibrant “Gateway Realm” to the inky black “Core Realm” Including important messages regarding unconditional love and right vs wrong The problem with reductive science and the conundrum that quantum mechanics faces How meditation can help you experience timelessness How sound, vibration and music can raise your consciousness Why you don’t need a near death experience to tap into the same wisdom How your prime directive is to “let love be your identity” --“nothing ventured, nothing gained” and how karma impacts your life --what is the purpose of free will?
