A Neurosurgeon Experiences The Afterlife

Died and Gone to Heaven

Okay, so lately you’re hearing a lot about the “nones.” These are the folks who are spiritual but are not affiliated with a particular church. They are not Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, or Presbyterians, but they are believers. So, I found this story interesting about Harvard professor and neurosurgeon Dr. Eben Alexander. He’s kind of a “none.”

Until he died...


And that’s when he says he experienced a life-changing visit to Heaven.


Here’s his description: 

He was floating above clouds and he saw "transparent, shimmering beings arced across the sky, leaving long, streamer like lines behind them.

He says then he was escorted by an unknown female companion and says they communicated through a method of correspondence that transcended language. And here’s what these beings said:

"You are loved and cherished, dearly, forever."

"You have nothing to fear."

"There is nothing you can do wrong."

From there, Alexander claims to have traveled to "an immense void, completely dark, infinite in size, yet also infinitely comforting." He believes this void was the home of God.


Of course, he’s back in the land of the living now and has a book about his “flight” called “Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife," which will be published in late October.


Does that sound like the Heaven you are waiting for or does it sound like fantasy?  Tell us on our Facebook!
