Learning About NDEs for Better Health & Well-Being
Did you know that learning about near-death experiences (NDEs) can improve your health and well-being?
According to the Journal of Spirituality in Mental Health, learning about near-death experiences promotes psycho-spiritual benefits in those who’ve NOT had one. Research shows positive and consistent aftereffects in those who’ve reported a near-death incident. The exciting part is that beneficial outcomes are also possible for those who only learn about them! Learning about NDEs can result in significant changes in one’s appreciation for life, death, and spirituality. Impressive, right? Before we dive deeper, let’s cover some basics.
What’s a Near-Death Experience?
A near-death experience is when a person is clinically dead and returns to life. This profound event often occurs when a person is close to death or in an emotional or physical crisis. NDEs have been well documented throughout history, with common reports of people having out-of-body experiences, heightened perceptions, and a deep spiritual connection.
The aftereffects are powerful and life-altering! Standard reports include intense feelings of oneness, peace, joy, love, and connection with an unconditionally loving light. Some experience a “life review” that provides a deep sense of purpose and knowledge. Although integration is needed, most NDErs view them as beneficial. Many say their NDE was one of their life’s most profound experiences. Watch the videos below for incredible firsthand accounts!
Who has NDEs?
NDEs occur worldwide with people of all ages, races, backgrounds, education levels, religions, and spiritual practices. Depending on how it’s defined, studies indicate that 12-40% of people will report their NDE. Several million reports have been documented in the U.S. alone!
9 Ways NDEs Can Benefit You
How does learning about death improve your health and well-being? Having a NDE and learning about near-death experiences can be profoundly empowering and transformative. Learning about NDEs helps you…
1. Feel Connected
One of the most significant benefits of NDEs is feeling connected to all that exists. NDEs give you a strong sense of oneness with the world and beyond. As the illusion of separation dissolves, you feel more love, compassion, and connection in all aspects of your life. This paradigm shift completely alters your reality for the better. You begin connecting with a safe and POWERFUL energy that supports you in co-creating the results you deserve.
“In truth, I’m not my body, my race, religion, or other beliefs, and neither is anyone else. The authentic self is infinite and much more powerful — a complete entity that isn’t broken or damaged. The infinite me already contains all the resources I need to navigate through life because I’m One with Universal energy. In fact, I am Universal energy.” — Anita Moorjani
2. Express Unconditional Love
Near-deathers often experience the feeling of pure, all-encompassing, and unconditional love. Many return to society without the previous attachments and conditions they felt before. They begin to perceive and express themselves more as conduits of universal love that are forgiving, compassionate, and understanding of others. This new outlook can raise one’s vibrational frequency, leading to more open and honest relationships.
“I believe love is why we’re here on the planet and that ultimately it’s our purpose for life. People who’ve had near-death episodes often report back that at the end of our lives we have a life review, and we’re asked one question… how much did you love?” — Marci Shimoff
3. Become More Spiritual
Having and learning about near-death experiences can profoundly affect your spirituality. NDEs shift your perspective to new possibilities and potential. Discovering deeper spiritual truths helps you understand who you are and why you’re here. Check out Secrets for Earth School Success. Many NDErs feel connected to something larger than themselves, which leads to a more spiritual perspective, a greater sense of purpose, and deeper levels of healing that benefit your health and well-being.
“From a spiritual perspective, I see NDEs as an initiation into a much larger reality. The N-D experience is a portal that opens up a person to psychic and spiritual gifts.” — Jeffrey Long
4. Experience Timelessness
Most experiencers develop a sense of timelessness. After having or learning about near-death experiences, many people associate less with their physical bodies and view themselves as immortal souls. They understand that living in this body allows them to learn important lessons for their soul’s growth. As a result, many tend to live more in the present.
“Death is a rebirth into a spirit world of light and love, a transition from the physical to the spiritual… It’s a joyful homecoming to our natural home.” — Betty Eadie
5. Let Go of Fear
NDEs help us let go of fear. One of the biggest obstacles to joy is fear. We’re afraid of failure, rejection, death, change, and more. Fear keeps us from doing what we want and being the people we like. After having an NDE or learning about NDEs, death is no longer feared; rather, death is just a part of life. This can help us live more fully and without fear.
“I have absolutely no fear of death. From my near-death research and my personal experiences, death is, in my judgment, simply a transition into another kind of reality.” — Raymond Moody
6. Improve Health & Well-Being
Near-death experiences can have a positive effect on your health and well-being. Studies show that people with a NDE are more likely to eat healthier, live better, and feel happier. They’re also more likely to quit drinking and smoking. As perspective changes, so does one’s approach to life. Many NDErs feel a greater sense of purpose and are more likely to nurture conscious connections, like spending time in nature and meditating.
“I am living proof that the NDE can change your life for the better. Since my NDE, I have made major changes in my life. I have quit smoking, drinking, and eating meat. I now meditate and pray regularly. As a result, I am happier and healthier than I have ever been.” — Anita Moorjani
7. Forgive & Heal
One of the most powerful things about NDEs is that they help you see the world from a different perspective, which can help you forgive yourself and others. After having an NDE, many people report feeling more love and compassion for others. They understand that we’re all connected and that we’re all here to learn and grow. As a result, they’re more likely to forgive themself and others, even those who have harmed them.
“My near-death experience showed me that forgiveness is one of the most powerful things we can do. It not only heals us, but it also heals those who have hurt us.” — Raymond Moody
8. Appreciate Life More
When you know death is not the end, life becomes much more precious and enjoyable. After a NDE, many people appreciate life and everything they have more. They often feel greater awareness, purpose, gratitude, and joy. These changes can lead to improved health on a mind, body, and soul level. As you let go of grudges, resentments, and material possessions, you create more space to appreciate the little things and live life to the fullest.
“My NDE changed my life. I no longer sweat the small stuff and I appreciate life much more. I also have a greater sense of purpose and a strong desire to help others.” — Anita Moorjani
9. Love, Create & Expand
One of the gifts of having and learning about near-death experiences is that they open you to more love and creativity. They allow you to expand more into who you are as a spiritual being having a human experience. After a NDE, many people feel a greater sense of connection and feel more loving towards themselves and others. Their creativity expands as they feel more inspired and connected to their intuition. These changes can lead to improved mental and emotional health and greater creativity in all areas of life.
“We don’t realize that we are perfect just the way we are. We are born perfect, but spend a lifetime trying to be something we are not, and then feel inadequate for failing. Your only purpose is to BE YOURSELF, otherwise you will deprive the universe of who you came here to be.” — Anita Moorjani Dying to be Me

In 2006, after four years of battling with cancer, Anita’s body went into a coma. After being rushed to the hospital, the oncologist told her husband, “Your wife’s heart may still be beating, but she’s not really there. It’s too late to save her. Her organs have already shut down. The tumors have grown to the size of lemons throughout her lymphatic system, from the base of her skull to below her abdomen. Her brain is filled with fluid, as are her lungs. And as you can see, her skin has developed lesions that are weeping with toxins. She won’t even make it through the night.” Anita has lived to share her miraculous NDE with others!
