Believing and Connecting with your Higher Self


“I hope you’re well and are having a happy holiday season. Your experiences are fascinating to me, especially the cyclones and all your lives playing out simultaneously [refer to my book I Died Three Times in 1977 - The Complete Story, available on].

“I believe you and also empathize with your experiences just enough for me to have faith that death is not the end. Reading experiences like yours makes me cry with relief, but often feel a deep unfulfilled yearning to be home, too. I miss my mom. She died a couple years ago and I began searching for an explanation for why we’re here. I had always been a seeker, but, after losing her, I sought more seriously. I learned that we’re here to grow spiritually and that we needed to incarnate to learn certain lessons. I’ve also come to understand that we choose our lives beforehand or else we agree to them with encouragement that everything will be okay in the end. 

But, I’m really stuck even though I know all that. I feel blocked from giving and receiving love. What I really need is to be able to connect with my higher self. How? Even though I believe all these things now, I haven’t connected with my higher self.”.....Allen


You write about what I went through, and the experience of others you have read about. Because you are familiar with my NDE, then you know that The Voice Like None Other, who spoke to me during my third NDE told me to become a researcher. This I did, and, in many ways, still am.

My research base is over 4,000 adult and child experiencers of near-death states. Having said that, I urge you to read my book Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience. I urge you to read it because it is “the people’s book.” That’s what I call it because all those voices from all I’ve heard, from my own work and that of others. . . their voice, their words, their truth, their knowing. . . is condensed into that one little book. You want to know about higher self, your soul, our comings and goings, life and death, God, mission, heaven and hell, and so much more, my dear, read that book. It’s the people’s book. Get it and hear what all those people, adults and children, had to say. It will amaze you, uplift you, and expand your mind and your heart.

The how-to book is just out. Yup, I wrote a manual. Not an ordinary manual. During my third near-death experience, when that Voice spoke to me, it told me to write three special books. The firsts one perhaps was Coming Back to Life, although I was never told for certain. The second and third were named. The second was Future Memory. It contains the what and why of life, existence. The third and last is A Manual for Developing Humans. It contains the how of life.

With the Manual, my mission, what I was told to do, is over. Well, that part is over, but not what I want to do with my remaining years. Actually, there are four more books I want to write. The first of the four I am currently engaged in doing - it concerns research on those who had a near-death experience between womb and the age of five. I’ve noticed that this group is decidedly different from other NDErs. I intend to find out why.

On your own quest, you might consider attending a metaphysical church, like Unity or any of the Centers for Spiritual Living; or even subscribing to the small digest-sized magazine, Science of Mind. What you will learn by doing so, experience yourself, will be wonderful and will help you to learn more about yourself and expand the potential of who you are. Please consider this.

Thanks for your inquiry. Blessings, PMH

How Can We Be Sure A Person is Really Dead?


“I just finished reading your book, Near-Death Experiencers: The Rest of the Story, and now I am ‘haunted’ by this question: with several instances you cite of individuals reviving with no brain impairment after several days believed to be dead. How can we be sure that a person has actually, really died? How long must we wait to be sure? This is a question of great personal importance to me as I recently lost a loved one who had a cardiac arrest, and after three days we were informed by the doctors that there was no chance of recovery - his brain function was limited to low stem. The decision was made to allow him to go, and he breathed his last a couple of hours later. More generally, what would be reliable guidelines for determining that someone has gone and is not coming back, prior to proceeding with the final arrangements (embalming/cremation) that ensure no return? 

Thank you for considering this question.”.....Susan


Our medical community is grappling with just this question. Following protocol is all we can do at this point in time, even if sometimes those protocols do not apply - like with near-death experiencers. But medicine is changing. One of the pioneers in a new type of medicine is Dr. Sam Parnia. You might google that name and see what you come up with. He’s written several books and is hard at work with actual research on new procedures in what is now called Resuscitation Medicine.

Yes, there are a number of people pronounced dead, who later revived in the morgue (much to the shock of morgue personnel). They were absolutely, positively dead - gone. Yet they came back. There are all manner of stories about this. Look in the Bible about Lazarus. We now know scientifically that when a baby is conceived, a bright light flashes. And, when a person dies, the same thing occurs. And that life flash/death flash happens with any animal or plant. So, what is life? Maybe we need to redefine life as well as redefine death. I’ve discussed this in several of my free monthly newsletters (available off my website in the Newsletter Archive), and I have broached it in my books. In truth, the near-death experience reveals more about life than it does death, and what it reveals is startling. We are capable of far more than we think we are.

How I handle this personally is to contact the soul, be with the soul, in prayer. What does the soul want? That to me is the more important question. What is going on spiritually, on greater and higher levels, that’s the place where I go for answers. Always. Sometimes the soul is ready to leave. Doesn’t matter what we want. What matters is what that soul wants. And sometimes that soul wants to stay here and will push us, prompt us, guide us in ways to help out, to heal. My life is filled with prayer, and with the joy of knowing I will be led rightly, for the highest good of all concerned. You bet I support Sam Parnia in his work, but I also give a wink to God. 

Blessings, PMH
