One of the common contentions that has existed between scientists/non-religious and the religious minds is the topic regarding whether there is an afterlife or perhaps, it’s just a hoax.
However, a woman has shared her experience which she claims reveals the certainty that life after death exists.
The woman, who identified as Elizabeth, spoke with Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), how she felt the presence of Jesus seven years ago during a brain surgery.
Elizabeth said, while on the operating table, she could feel God looking down on her.
“I had been an avid runner for twenty years, had travelled extensively and was now teaching Pilates, when I noticed a change in my hip, which had started to feel ‘weird,'” Elizabeth explained.
“I thought it was a pinched nerve, but on Sunday in Sept 2012, I had four seizures in one day.”
Elizabeth explained how she went to a doctor for a MRI of the brain, and how it was revealed that she had a tumour on her brain’s parietal lobe, about the size of a lemon.
In total, she had two surgeries, with the first procedure taking a biopsy of the tumour.
“During the second surgery, I had an epiphany about Jesus,” Elizabeth said.
“I felt enormous love from him and I felt horribly sorry I had not gotten closer to him during my life.”
“When I would close my eyes, I would see a white light.
“I felt it was God looking at me and caring for me, and that Jesus was literally holding me.” She added.
According to Elizabeth, during this experience, everything seemed to have happened at once as if time was non-existent.
Explanations given for NDEs from the scientific perspective suggests that an NDE is a subjective phenomenon which results from “disturbed bodily multisensory integration” that occurs during life threatening events.
Elizabeth’s experience however, is one out of many who have shared their believe in life after death, due to one or more NDEs they went through.
