I’ve always found the concept of death scary and fascinating at the same time. When I was a little girl, maybe about five years old or so, I asked my mom what happens after you die. My mother, not much for being a kind and caring mom, told me that “nothing happens. The light turns off and that’s it.”
I remember that distinctly thinking about a lightbulb turning off and it being dark. I had, at what I would say now, was a panic attack. I started freaking out and crying—I didn’t want to just disappear. There had to be more than that in life, otherwise, what was the point of it all? (Yes, I believe I really did have all of these complex thoughts).
As I got older, I was drawn to the supernatural, the macabre. I wanted there to be something that I could grasp that would tell me there was another life after this life.
I grew up, became a nurse, and by magic or destiny, I got into hospice care. Talk about facing your fears!
Hospice nursing was one of the most fulfilling work I’ve ever done, and I learned so much about death by working with people who were closest to the thin veil. From my experience, I found there may very well be something after we leave this world.
I’ve been watching the Netflix series, “Surviving Death.” This series is fantastic. It goes into many different aspects of the life after death; near-death experience, reincarnation, Mediumship, seances—ALL THE GOOD STUFF!
So my question to you is, have you had any experience with life after death? I’d like to hear your stories.
