Full Life Experience - Lisa Smartt

Deep Dives in Extraordinary Times - A podcast with Marie Trout

Lisa Smartt is an author of best-selling books, a poet, and a linguist. Lisa’s research on the Final Words Project has broken new ground. Realizing that her father’s language went through a personality change when he was close to dying, Lisa decided to research a missing area of our knowledge base: the language of the dying. Her book, Words at the Threshold catalogues and analyzes some of the patterns of liminal language. Since 2013, she has worked closely with Raymond Moody (who coined the phrase and conducted initial research on Near Death Experiences and who is the author of the book Life After Life). In this podcast, we also talk about the many little deaths each of us go through in life - when relationships end, when circumstances throw us off, and when we lose someone. Ultimately, we talk about the potential for transformation when we - again - find, and connect to, the light.  http://www.finalwordsproject.org/ https://lifeafterlife.com/book-coaching/--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/marie-trout/message

MIND-BLOWING PROOF OF LIFE AFTER LIFE!!! Self-Help & Spirituality Tips from Dr. Raymond Moody and Lisa Smartt

Inspire Nation Show with Michael Sandler

If you’ve ever wondered if there’s an afterlife and answers to life’s greatest questions, then do we have the show for you. Today I’ll be talking with one of the world’s leading authorities on NDE’s, Dr. Raymond Moody, the best-selling author of Life After Life who actually coined the term Near Death Experience (NDE). And Lisa Smartt, literacy expert and the best-selling author of a brilliant book on final words called Words at the Threshold, about their elevating new project, The University of Heaven. And that’s just what I want to talk with them about, about life beyond life and answers to life’s greatest questions from near-death experiences, shared death experiences, and even after-death experiences. Key Points Discussed:  How Dr. Moody learned about near-death experiences. What happened when Dr. Moody went to medical school after becoming an expert on NDE’s. How did Lisa Smartt get interested in people’s final or dying words? What can we learn from the language of nonsense – people’s last words, or words of delirium? What can we learn about life, and life after life, from Near Death Experiences? Who is Anthony Cicoria and what happened with his near death experience? What are the different levels of experiences people have with NDE’s? What are some of the common things that take place in NDE’s? What does it mean that death is a transition into another reality? Are people who have had NDE’s on a mission when they come back? What can we learn from early greek philosophers about NDE’s? What can we learn from Plato and the cave allegory about near death experiences? What happened to Carl Jung and how did it change him? What do people start saying before they die? What is a living dream and what can we learn from it? What does it mean that final words has meaning and patterns to it? What happens to people when they’re out of their body? What do we realize when we leave our bodies? What do near death experiences teach us about life? What are shared death experiences? Is it definitive that there is an afterlife? How do shared death experiences prove there’s an afterlife? What can our kids teach us about life after life? What can we learn from kids about reincarnation?

Lisa Smartt (Author of Words at the Threshold)

Until We Meet Again

Lisa Smartt is the author of Words at the Threshold, a book dedicated to the final words of the dying. When Lisa's father became terminally ill with cancer, she began recording his conversations and noticed that his personality showed some curious changes. Once a skeptical man with a secular worldview, he developed a deeply spiritual outlook in his final days — a change that was reflected in his language. Lisa came from a background of linguistics training and majored in linguistics at UC Berkeley so this provoked her to track his final words. http://www.finalwordsproject.org/

This is a really important topic, as Lisa reveals that the dying are often communicating much more to us than we might realize. By paying attention in the ways she recommends, their final words in this life become more comprehensible.Topics we explored together included: How language reveals one's mental processes Lisa’s father’s experience that piqued her interest in final words The common occurrence of a person announcing a “big event” as they near their death The value of writing down what our loved ones say toward the end of their life Common metaphors, constructions, and premonitions that show up in final words Synchronicities at the threshold of death that can guide us to better living The appearance of "takeaway figures" in the language of the dying (describing the deceased at their bedside) Ways that those who are dying try to signal to loved ones that their death is nearing The emergence of “terminal lucidity” near the end of life Nonverbal communication with those who are dying Being open to the mysterious The existence of something accessible that is beyond us (or beside us) What those who are dying need from us as we sit with them The wisdom the dying have to offerLisa's book is available here (a percentage of sales made through this affiliate link will be used to support the podcast, at no additional cost to you): Words at the Threshold: What We Say as We're Nearing DeathYou can find a free chapter of her book on the Final Words Project website.Lisa Smartt, MA, is a linguist and educator.
