The discussion with George Noory was, of course, about near-death experiences. But he was also there to talk about his upcoming book later this year, co-written with Paul Perry. Moody’s book Reunions: Visionary Encounters with Departed Loved Ones, was co-written with Paul Perry. Perry has also co-written a number of books including several written with Dr. Melvin Morse on NDEs, and with Dannion Brinkley. I’ve always enjoyed the writing of Paul Perry that seems to come through in those mentioned books.
Dr. Moody has for years researched Near Death Experiences but he said he has recently become more confident about the reality of life-after-death because of what he calls, “shared death experiences.” In other words, bystanders who are at the death bed of a loved one have reported seeing a light, the appearance of a tunnel, deceased loved ones, spiritual beings, and even co-participating in the panoramic life-review of the person who was passing away.
He stated they are in effect, “empathically co-living the dying experience of those that are close to them.”
Doesn’t that sound absolutely extraordinary and fascinating? Not only will it be interesting reading the book by Moody and Perry, but then hearing others who will come forward with their own experiences that occurred at the time of death of a loved one.
And people will come forward as they did and have done about their own NDEs or other spiritual experiences when they realize it is safe to do so, and not be thought “crazy.” We’ve all seen that happen in recent years with the acceptance of spiritual experiences, including angels, spirit guides, mediumship, communication with the Other Side, and past lives. And I must say, the media has helped with that as has professionals, such as Doctors Moody, Kubler-Ross, Weiss, Morse, Dossey, Chopra, among others.
The new book, Between Two Worlds: Glimpses of Eternity Through Shared Death Experiences will be published in the Fall of 2010.
From the Paul Perry Website:
“In this truly groundbreaking book, New York Times bestselling authors Raymond Moody, MD, and Paul Perry search for the answer to mankind's oldest question, What happens when we die?
“They have searched for the answer before by examining the compelling stories of those who have had near-death experiences. This time they examine the stories of those who share the death experience with a loved one. In this book you will read jaw-dropping stories of people who unexpectedly find themselves leaving this earth as loved ones die and following them "into the light" where they see dead relatives and beings of Light before returning to their place on earth, convinced of a life after life.
“This book provides convincing evidence that we survive bodily death, and takes a giant step forward in afterlife exploration.”
After watching the interview of Dr. Raymond Moody by Paul Perry, you can download a PDF of the first chapter of their new book here.
Not only do I enjoy reading about life after death and the other spiritual phenomena, I also enjoy researching and writing about these kinds of spiritual experiences in my e-courses, e-books and my print books. The latest of those would be my e-book, How Thin the Veil: 150 Years of Spiritualism, if your interested in reading more.
150 Years here in America, so, what’s new? We just need facts, ma’am. Then we’ll believe it.
