Does your life really flash before your eyes in a near death situation? The simple answer is no. The better answer is that it’s way deeper than that. According to those who have had near death experiences, such as Dannion Brinkley, you literally become the characters in the movie of your life. Brinkley was pronounced dead for 28 minutes after a lightning strike on September 17th, 1975 and came back a changed man. Countless people have experienced near death experiences, and it is the common themes in their stories that confirm what most of us already know – there is an afterlife, and it’s beautiful. Near death accounts tell of the loving energy, out of body experiences, and approaching a radiant beautiful light. However, Dannion’s experience is unique in the fact that his account is one of the most detailed to date. One of the details Brinkley goes into is one that is a central aspect of my latest book – the panoramic life review. We often hear the phrase, “I saw my life flash before my eyes.” However, when one begins to make that transition from the physical world into the spiritual world, it is not so much a flash, but rather a very deep and emotional interaction.
How many times have you said to yourself, “If I only knew what he/she was thinking…” Don’t worry, you will. When your body passes into the spiritual realm, you will essentially press the replay button on the story of your life. You will travel back in time and see the thousands of people you have encountered in your lifetime. The unique and amazing part of this experience is that, unlike watching a replay on your television where you simply see characters re-enact situations, you will actually be there in that moment, experiencing everyone’s emotions are if they were your own. You will actually get to feel how your words and actions have affected all the people in your life.
My question is simply this, why do we have to wait until death or near death to experience something so positively transformative in our lives? We don’t! If you are living and reading this, please understand that the time for your panoramic life review is NOW! This is the message Brinkley has been sent back to tell us. You’re living out your life story right now – don’t wait for the replay. You have a chance in the present to release any guilt or resentment you may have in your heart. You have a chance to leave this life with no regrets.
But how? Well, like many instances in our lives, the answer is very simple – with a letter. Write your loved ones a positive letter telling them how much they mean to you and what you cherish about them. Also, speak about any regrets and resentments you may have had, and let the letter be the cleansing of those regrets and resentments. This is not the easiest thing to do, but it is “eternally” worth it. My letters to my family were not easy ones to write, but they have made all the difference, not only in our communication with each other, but in the peace that now exists between all of us. Take advantage of this fulfilling and life changing exercise while you’re here on earth. Experience your life review and try to see through the eyes of others now, before it is too late.
Angel Blessings to you.
