New study of Near Death Experiences reveals that people experience `God`. A major result from Rene Jorgensen's new study of 16 near death experiences reveals that people overwhelmingly agree to call the core of their experience - an experience of `God`
When asked: “What would you describe the core or essence of your experience as”, the study found that 53 percent checked the box with “pure being”, and 60 percent said yes to “essence of existence.” Moving further into trying to put a name on this core or essence the consensus became higher with 73 percent agreeing to call it “the Light”, and a majority of 80 percent calling it “God.”
Even though 80 -90 percent of people who have an NDE testify that they are convinced there is life after death, the most compelling evidence is the depth and sincerity of their testimonies. Most NDErs do not see themselves as being near to death but actually in death, and because of the power of the experience, there is seldom any doubt of its reality.
The other side or realm is convincing beyond any doubt due to the sheer power of experiencing it and most NDErs call the experience ‘hyper-real’; more real than anything in this dimension. One study found that 96 percent of NDErs said that the experience was not a dream but real unlike anything they had ever experienced in this world.
Another fact that strongly suggests that the NDE is not a dream or illusion is that the experience has a very powerful positive life changing effect. Studies continuously find that most people who have NDEs report that their life has been affected in a profound way. Since both dreams and hallucinations do not have this same effect on people, the life-changing effect of the NDE is strong evidence that the NDE is very real to the experiencer.
